She was working as a midwife in the Rotunda Hospital during the events of Easter Week 1916 and described how Dublin was turned into a war zone.

Mary was later an active member of the Abbeyleix Guild of the Irish Countrywomen’s Association and wrote about her experiences to commemorate 50 years of the Guild.
