This week, I’m talking to Niamh Ní Chonchubhair on the Woman Up! podcast.
Niamh is the CEO and Director of Axis: Ballymun, and – I have to be honest – this episode really sounds like a love letter to Ballymun. And, sure, what’s wrong with that?!
I asked Niamh to join me on the podcast because Theatre is my first love. We’re all all about our stories, and we all want our stories to be told, to be heard, to be born witness to. We want to see ourselves in the stories of our cultures. We want to relate to the stories that are presented to us – through whichever medium they are presented.
I’m also a proud member of the MAM (Mothers Artists Makers), steering committee. MAM represents mothers who are theatre makers and who are also mothers.
All these things considered, Niamh was an ideal person to invite on the podcast. I know she’s a busy woman – especially during the Dublin Theatre Festival! – so I was delighted that she was able to carve out some time for me. I found Niamh’s enthusiasm for everything she mentions infectious – I think you will, too.
