Sheila Humphreys She spent a year in Paris (1919–20). Sighle joined "Cumann na mBan" in 1919 aged twenty, which organization was founded in response to the very few women at the Sinn Féin Convention of October 1917. Sighle Humphreys (to use her Irish first name) serving variously as secretary, director of publicity and national vice-president. She was on the committee of the Irish Volunteer Dependants' Fund after the Rising. She was engaged in finding safe-houses for those on the run. The family home at 36 Ailesbury Road was used as an IRA safe house throughout the War of Independence. The Dáil Cabinet had weekly meetings and frequently used the big house on Ailebury Road. To ministers like Robert Barton, the embryonic republic was protected by a hard shell of army and politicians; but this did not prevent women in the movement being arrested. When Ernie O'Malley was captured at the Humphreys home in 1922, she was one of those imprisoned. She was finally released on 29 November 1923 after a thirty-one day hunger strike. The family took the anti-Treaty position during the Civil War and the house on Ailesbury Road was the object of regular raids by Free State forces. The most significant raid took place on 4 November 1922 when IRA Assistant Chief of Staff Ernie O'Malley was wounded and arrested in a protracted shoot-out with Free State soldiers. At the time only Humphreys, her mother and aunt were staying in the house with O'Malley. Humphreys is known to have played an active part in resisting the raid, though she always denied reports that she had been responsible for shooting a Free State soldier who died in the fighting. Sighle always said that Ernie O'Malley was 'a soldier above all', Since 1916, "Soldiers are We" was the unofficial national anthem of the Republic. The incident is described in detail in O'Malley's memoir of the Civil War, "The Singing Flame". In 2003 the raid was the subject of an hour-long docudrama entitled "The Struggle". The film was directed and scripted by Humphrey's grandsons Manchán Magan and Ruán Magan and produced by RTÉ.
Sheela na gig Jørgen Andersen writes that the name is an Irish phrase, originally either "Sighle na gCíoch", meaning "the old hag of the breasts", or "Síle ina Giob", meaning "Sheila (from the Irish "Síle," the Irish form of the Anglo-Norman name Cecile or Cecilia) on her hunkers". Dinneen also gives "Síle na gCíoċ", stating it is "a stone fetish representing a woman, supposed to give fertility, gnly [= "generally"] thought to have been introduced by the Normans." Other researchers have questioned these interpretations; few sheela na gigs are shown with breasts, and expressed doubt about the linguistic connection between "ina Giob" and "na Gig". The phrase "sheela na gig" was said to be a term for a hag or old woman.
