Celebrating International Women’s Day with Eímear Noone

The concert featured National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Eímear and eight other Irish female performers for a memorable evening at the National Concert Hall in Dublin.
“Daughter, lover, mother, leader – Grace O’Malley was all of these things and so much more; not a myth, but a flesh-and-blood Irish woman. The fierce heart of the pirate queen resides in us all. Therefore, we are all her daughters.” — Eímear Noone
