I was lucky enough to meet Maureen O’Hara when she received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Irish Tatler​ Women Of The Year Awards in 2010. Maureen spoke at length about her own struggles as a woman trying to succeed in Hollywood in the 1940’s, and you could hear a pin drop in the packed ballroom for the duration of her acceptance speech. She was a very engaging, entertaining 90-year-old lady then and she received a standing ovation for her hilarious anecdotes about the business. This mid-term break, I’ll be introducing my girls to the films of Maureen O’Hara, it’s the best way I can think of honouring an incredibly talented and inspirational woman.
