Scottish journalist, the first woman war correspondent to be decorated with the French Croix de Guerre.

Irons's relationship with the writer Vita Sackville-West was well-known – months before her death, an Evening Standard headline identified her as the "war correspondent who broke Vita's heart" – but the romance was brief.

In 1932 Irons met a fellow journalist, Joy McSweeney, and they lived together until McSweeney's death in 1978. Irons died in Brewster, New York, on 3 April 2000, at the age of 99, two months short of her 100th birthday.
