Courageous Women

To celebrate National Heritage Week, Smashing Times will screen two short films on the theme of Courageous Women Castle to Castle.

Featuring chats, storytelling and performances with artists, historians and guest speakers, these films highlight the incredible stories of women in history and their impact on our lives today.

Smashing Times chose the unique settings of Rathfarnham Castle and Dublin Castle to remember and reflect on stories of courageous women from the past and today. The screenings feature scenes from Constance and Her Friends by Mary Moynihan, inspired by women’s stories from 1916 to 1923, recently performed in Dublin Castle and The Woman is Present: Women’s Stories of WWII by Mary Moynihan, Fiona Thompson, Paul Kennedy and Féilim James, performed in Rathfarnham Castle.

Audiences can access the films during Heritage week via our website.
