    RTÉ A POEM FOR IRELAND
    The Best-Loved Irish Poem of the Last 100 Years
    www.rte.ie/apoemforireland

    What is your most-loved Irish poem of the last century? RTÉ A Poem for Ireland is a major new RTÉ campaign which aims to get the public talking about the poems they feel are the most-loved Irish poems of the past 100 years.

    In this era of centenaries, RTÉ looks back at the Irish poems and poets of the past 100 years and asks the public to help us identify the Irish poems of the past century that we love the most. Whether it’s a poem you studied at school and loved; one that stood out for you at a wedding or funeral, a poem you came across at an important moment in your life, or one your father or mother used to recite; whether it’s a love poem, a political poem, a poem about nature, life, loss, emigration, and whether it’s in Irish or in English, it doesn’t matter. As long as it’s an Irish poem, published in the last century, and you love it, then tell us, and tell us why you love it.

    The campaign will be spearheaded by The Works, RTÉ One’s flagship arts show, and RTÉ Radio 1’s The John Murray Show in partnership with Poetry Ireland and An Post.

    A Murray Christmas 2 CD Launch

    This morning we have a special edition of The John Murray Show, in Eason's in Dundrum Town Centre, launching our 'Murray Christmas 2' CD supporting Aware Depression Support.

        

        

    www.aware.ie or telephone Aware (01) 661.7211

    It features a beautiful array of music and really does capture the spirit of Christmas past and present in Ireland.  It includes some classic favourites like “Stop The Cavalry” by the Riptide Movement, “Happy Christmas War Is Over” by Damien Dempsey, &  “O Holy Night” by Eimear Quinn.

    We also bring you a range of specially written original tracks – covering contemporary, traditional and classical music – and the magic ingredient they all share is the exquisite presence of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

    To support the launch of the CD, we have guests Bill O'Herlihy, Dr Claire Hayes, Michael Harding, Cathy Davey, Gavin Murphy, Declan O'Rourke & consultant psychiatrist Dr. Declan Lyons.

    {We’ll be playing a selection from the CD  throughout today’s show & a competition for three pairs of tickets to our Murray Christmas Concert – Dec 17th with a two night stay in a Dublin hotel}
