The premiere of ‘Angels of Mercy’ will go to air on Documentary on Newstalk Radio March 14 and again March 20 2021.

It’s the story of the women who left Ireland to train and work as nurses in England across the 2nd half of the 20th Century and were an often overlooked but important element in the development of the UK National Health Service.

The story is told through the experiences of 5 Irish women of different generations who made their careers in Nursing in England between 1950 – 1980  In addition historians Professor Louise Ryan, Professor Jennifer Redmond and Dr Sarah O’Brien give context to the women’s narrative.
