Best known as the mother of playwright Brendan Behan, and singer, song writer Dominic Behan, Kathleen Behan (née Kearney) came from a family rich in song, and the traditions of Dublin. She lived through the Easter Rising of 1916 and carried with her a vibrant spirit which she passed on to her children.
