Settled from earliest times on the Emerald Isle, bearers of the Higgins name, in all its rich variety of spellings, for centuries fulfilled the honoured role of hereditary poets to a number of powerful Irish clans.

In common with other native Irish, many were later forced to seek new lives in foreign lands – where they subsequently achieved distinction and acclaim.

One intrepid bearer of the name was the American journalist and author Marguerite Higgins, recognised as having advanced the cause of equal access to war zones for female reporters.

During the Second World War she witnessed the horror of the newly liberated Dachau concentration camp, and later covered the Korean War – her coverage of the conflict resulting in her becoming the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for international reporting, while she also interviewed world leaders including the Soviet Union’s Nikita Khruschev.

Presented here is the proud tale of bearers of the Higgins name.
