#81 | A Woman’s Place: Motherfoclóir Beo In Maynooth

Motherfoclóir Beo was recorded in front of a live audience in the Maynooth Students’ Union Venue as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge 2019. Gearóidín and Eimear explore the 1937 Constitution and in particular the provision that a woman’s place is in the home. Was this a betrayal of Brehon Law and Irish history? Or was it a reflection of what we’ve always done – sidelining women? Can a country fail the Bechdel Test? Peadar asks the questions as our resident legal eagle and medievalist take on over 1500 years of misogyny and patriarchy.
