Delighted to have taken part at the St Brigid's Day celebrations at the Irish Embassy in London on Friday 1 February.
Many thanks to Ambassador O'Neill and the Embassy staff for their welcome and kind hospitality.
It was a privilege to bring Grace O'Malley, the original female Irish trailblazer, back to London after 400 years.
And with such a positive reaction to her story from the large audience present.
A special thanks to my 'crew' for the evening - the wonderful Roisin Ingle for chairing my interview, to Olwen Fouere for her incisive portrayal of both Grace O'Malley and Queen
Elizabeth I from my play Matriarchs and to the modern-day Grace - the intrepid Joan Mulloy from Westport - who plans to sail solo around the World in 2020.
