 Confined to a room for nine months in a house she once called her home. The Daughters of Róisín is a poignant ode to Ireland’s hidden past that explores the church and state sanctioned abuse against women over the last 100 years. Wee Yarn Productions in partnership with Sole Purpose Productions invite you to witness and journey with this forsaken Daughter of Ireland.
