Herstory presented a magical night of storytelling, comedy, theatre, dance and music in celebration of Ireland’s extraordinary women at The Liquor Rooms on Culture Night, Friday 16th September from 8 - 12pm.
15 performers and speakers included Amy De Bhrún, Alison Spittle, Siofra O' Meara, Eve Darcy, Sinead Gleeson, Aideen McQueen, Eleanor Fitzsimons, Andre K'Por, Yvonne Usher, Genevieve Healy, Ashley Tubridy, Fiona Lowe, Sisters of the Rising, Dr. Anne Rosenbusch, Treasa Kerrigan and Dr. Jennifer Redmond. The Goddess Club hosted ‘Crazy in Love’ burlesque dance classes on the hour, every hour.
To toast the bravery of Ireland’s remarkable women adventurers and explorers, The Liquor Rooms' mixologist made special cocktails in their honour, and An Olivia Chocolate captured the women’s characters in signature liquor chocolates to tempt the most discerning chocolate lover.
The event was attended by 910 people over the course of the night with a constant queue down the quays. Herstorian Sinead Mc Coole attended and she said she has never seen such a young audience so engaged with women's history.
