    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.

    Oscar's Cafe in Cork

    Today, John was broadcasting live from Oscar’s Cafe on Cook Street, Cork. Last year we organised a challenge on ‘The John Murray Show’ for café, restaurant and pub owners to tell us why their business needed the expertise of restaurant advisor Bláthnaid Bergin. Plenty of people got in touch from all over the country and Oscar’s café was the one that stood out. John spoke to cafe owner Daragh Fitzgerald, restaurant advisor Bláthnaid Bergin, former Dragon Sean O’Sullivan and doggie daycare owner, Nanci Creedon. We also had music from The Frank and Walters and comedy with Christ Kent.

    Teachers Strike - Students in Cork

    About 350,000 secondary level students were off school yesterday as their teachers staged another one day strike. During the last strike in December, Colm Flynn took to the streets of Cork to test the students on their knowledge. The results weren't great, so Colm decided to give them a second chance. But how did they get on this time?
