Denise O’Connor and Betiel Baraki have captured some of the atmosphere for us.

Episode 1: The legacy of WWI women doctors

These 4 podcasts explore the Legacy of the Endell Street Military Hospital, the only British army hospital to have been established and run by women during WWI. Opened in 1915 on the site of a former Victorian workhouse by Suffragette doctors Flora Murray and Louisa Garrett Anderson, its staff of 180 women treated over 26,000 in-patients and performed over 7,000 surgical operations.
In 2018 a group of local volunteers came together to learn research and recording skills as part of a Heritage Lottery funded project, and they created these podcasts to share their findings about what happened to the hospital and its female staff members after the war ended.

This piece was inspired by the fictional TV character Mrs Brown, which is set in Finglas, in North Dublin.

Taking a trip down memory lane and reviewing the hardships that putting the foetal hearbeat ahead of women’s health caused in Finglas (and all over Ireland). This audio was originally developed for a Speaking of IMELDA performance in Ireland in 2016.
