Seven Women

About the Work

Everyone has heard of the seven men who signed the Proclamation of the Irish Republic, but we never hear about the women who were caught up in the extraordinary events of Easter 1916. Some of them were literally airbrushed out of history. This riveting 54 min documentary drama reveals the astonishing stories of seven women who were at the heart of the Easter Rising.

Giles Packham’s score for Seven Women follows the unfolding drama of the days around the rising’s events.

Seven Women will first air on RTE 1 at 9.30pm on Sunday 20th March as well as at the Lighthouse cinema on Easter Monday.
