As we approach International Women's Day, Notes From a Quiet Land gathers some of Ireland's most exciting female voices to reflect in this silence. Mark the silence with words, with music.

Watch the live spectacular from Dublin's National Concert Hall above, featuring musical performances from Maria Doyle Kennedy, Gemma Dunleavy, Fehdah and Aoife Nessa Frances, plus readings from Anne Enright, Tara Flynn, Annemarie Ní Churreáin and Felispeaks.

Notes From a Quiet Land is curated by Sinéad Gleeson (author of Constellations) and Gary Sheehan (NCH).
