In January 1923 the Free State imprisoned Buckley for seven months in Mountjoy Gaol where she partook in a mass hunger strike of republican prisoners and was transferred, together with other Cumann na mBan women, including Marie Comerford, to the North Dublin Union, before being released in October 1923.
Buckley was a lifelong member of Sinn Féin and Cumann na mBan and was Sinn Féin President from 1937 to 1950 and Vice-President from 1950-1958.
