The Cuala Press was founded, as the Dun Emer Press, by Elizabeth Corbet Yeats and Lily Yeats (sisters of William Butler Yeats) in 1902. Its original object was to stimulate Irish industries and to train and employ Irish girls: the press was unusual in that it was staffed entirely by women. Until it ceased operation in the late 1940s it followed a program of printing works by contemporary Irish authors in addition to new editions and translations of Irish classics. (15)
