    The Best-Loved Irish Poem of the Last 100 Years

    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.

    Brendan O'Connor

    Brendan O'Connor of the Saturday Night Show broke his arm six weeks ago. He talks about the injury and also speculation regarding his continued hosting of the show.


    Chloe Agnew

    When you have oboist David Agnew for a dad and Twink for a mum, it is hardly surprising that you progress into show business. Chloe Agnew is just 25 and has already toured the world for ten years with the enormously successful Celtic Woman but she is also a solo artist.

    Chloe and her boyfriend, Dermot, have settled in L.A. where there is a large Irish community and she has busied herself song-writing, getting her hand into acting, and working with a voiceover animation group. She  has been making lots of guest appearances at concerts and will be touring in Europe and the US this year.

    An Evening with Chloe Agnew is on at The Mill Theatre, Dundrum, Dublin, tonight at 8pm. Tickets €25 from or call 01-296-9340.



    Liene Berzina from Latvia joined John today to share her story.  She suffered terribly with ache, which has now thankfully cleared.

    This is Liene before and after treatment.   


    Dr Cal Condon, a Consultant Dermatologist at Dublin’s Blackrock Clinic, who treats patients with this condition, talks to John about the problems associated with it and the treatments available.
