DUBLIN: Women and Warriors

VENUE: Smock Alley Theatre, Main Space, 6/7 Exchange Street Lower, Dublin 8

DATE: Saturday 6th January at 7.30pm

CandleLit Tales presents Women & Warriors. Most of us can name the great heroes of Irish legend, but what about the great heroines? Women who fought as hard as their husbands and brothers and sons, who struggled under curses and captivity, who rebelled, who avenged their loved ones, and avenged themselves. Women who deserve to be remembered!

Join us for ancient tales retold. Some you may know, but from another perspective, some you may never have heard (including the lost tale of Eachtach, who proved more than a match to Fionn MacCumhaill). Tales of strength and tales of softness, and where those aspects meet.
