Hilary Dully is a documentary filmmaker, teacher and writer. She has recently completed a yet unpublished novel.
Her film work has been shown on RTÉ, Channel Four, TG4 and a number of international festivals. She is currently making a film about six Irish women, survivors of institutional abuse, who emigrated to Britain in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. The film follows their journey as they come to terms with the pain of the past, and the absence of maternal love, through healing.
Hilary teaches film production at the Huston School of Film and Digital Media, NUI Galway, where she is presently doing a practice-based PhD in Digital Arts. Her research, through the medium of film, will explore and critique 30 years of the televised abortion debate in Ireland. She lives in east Clare with her family.
