Ailbhe Griffith speaks to Esther McCarthy in today's Examiner
On being asked by Alan Gilsenan to play herself:
“When he originally asked me, I took a day or two to confirm,” she says. “But I suppose my own gut instinct on the matter was, I felt what I could contribute was, that I could definitely make it as authentic as it could possibly be, it being a piece of drama but at the same time, us wanting to really bring the power of restorative justice home.
“I felt that if I could bring that authenticity to what’s being said, and avoid stereotypes and people making assumptions about how a person would be in that scenario, that I could do restorative justice a service.”
