In Belfast Girls, Jaki McCarrick dramatises Irish history. On the cusp of a great societal revolution, five street women orphaned by the Irish Famine embark on a journey of love, betrayal and adventure, hopeful they will find a fresh start in a new land. The five “Belfast Girls are dramatised based on the real-life women who sought passage in 1850 aboard the Inchinnan, a ship bound for Australia.
