The Day That Changed My Life

Journalist and Author Caitlin McBride joins us to chat about her new book 'The Day That Changed My Life' which chronicles the stories of 31 inspirational Irish women.

Described as an 'anthology focusing on women's interests, through women's voices' by the author, 'The Day That Changed My Life' is a remarkable collection of stories of Ireland's women and the extraordinary moments which transformed their lives.

There are stories of the marvels of motherhood and coming out, leaps of faith and determined entrepreneurship. Stories of crazy highs, such as Oscar nominations and being elected into office. And stories of brave fights against illness and triumphs against all odds.

All are united by a strength in adversity, courage and resilience, and an ability to find humour in the darkest places. Our lives change, but some days change our lives forever. There's a wide range of women, not just celebs and well known media personalities. For example Alzheimer's advocate Kathy Ryan and Former Deputy Chief Constable in Northern Ireland Judith Gillispie.
