Navigate around the works of six poets specially commissioned to commemorate the 1916 Rising.
The app gives access to the text and streaming videos for each of the poet’s works.
The Irish Writers Centre commissioned six poems, one for each day of the Rising, from influential contemporary poets, Theo Dorgan, Paul Muldoon, Thomas McCarthy, Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill and Jessica Traynor. The poems reflect on significant figures and events associated with the Rising, including James Connolly, Patrick Pearse, Dr Kathleen Lynn, Elizabeth O’Farrell and Michael Joseph O’Rahilly. Each poet has been filmed performing their poem at relevant and resonant locations, including Moore Street, City Hall, the GPO, Liberty Hall and the Garden of Remembrance. An original score for the film has been composed by Colm Mac Con Iomaire.
