The Pirate Queen was Grace of Malley who ruled the seas in the west of Ireland. The sail on her boat is gold plated and her hair features a Celtic braid.

As a young girl, Grace O’Malley always had an adventurous spirit.  Her father was the leader of the O’Malley clan, who traded on the seas off the West Coast of Ireland.  She begged to be allowed to sail with him, but to put her off he told her that her long hair would get caught in the ship’s sails.  He was surprised then to see her arrive at his ship one day, her long hair all cut off, ready to go to sea.  This brought her the nickname ‘Granuaile’, the Bald Grainne, which she was known by for the rest of her days.

A clever fierce leader Granuaile quickly established herself as a major force in the West of Ireland.  She taxed the ships that sailed in her region, thus earning herself the name ‘The Pirate Queen’.  Towards the end of her life, her sons were taken captive by the English Army.  The courageous Granuaile took her largest ship and sailed up the Thames River in London to meet with Queen Elizabeth 1.  The two women were said to have had great mutual respect, and Queen Elizabeth agreed to free The Pirate Queen’s sons.  Grace returned home and lived out the rest of her days in her castle on Clare Island.
