Rosemary Smith

Driven: the life and times of Rosemary Smith

Venue: Kells Theatre - Creative Ireland Stage

Rosemary Smith is undoubtedly one of the icons of modern Irish sport. As a champion rally driver in the 1960s and 1970s she competed with her male counterparts .. and won. In 1965 she famously beat all comers, male and female, in the Tulip Rally in the Netherlands. She was a regular competitor in the Monte Carlo and the Circuit of Ireland rallies and also braved the tortuous London-Sydney marathon (7000 miles and 11 countries). She recently published an account of her racing life, Driven. The only question is why it took her so long to record such an extraordinary career. She still likes to drive fast!
