Dervla Murphy is Ireland’s most prolific travel writer who for five decades has travelled the world alone and with her daughter Rachel. A fiercely independent woman who turned her back on societal conventions, she observed and recorded the world with wonder and curiosity, and an astute political sensibility. But who is Dervla Murphy? This new documentary explores the woman behind the words in an interview that shows her personal life to be as fascinating as her extensive journeys. Featuring interviews with Dervla, her daughter Rachel, her publisher John Murray and writer Manchán Magan.
