I would argue this movie does not have two named women in it. Siobhan is the only woman with a given (first) name. Mrs. McCormick and Mrs. O'Riordan do not have first names, only family names (surnames). Therefore the movie passes 0 tests in my opinion.

In addition to briefly speaking with Mrs. McCormick, Siobhan briefly speaks with Mrs. O'Riordan at the shop about a letter Siobhan has received.

This is false. Padraic is already in the room and the two women talked about when Siobhan's mother *and father* died. This does not pass the Bechdel test.
