    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.

    Domini Kemp

    If you’re a woman, it’s the one thing you dread finding... and that’s a lump in your breast. Earlier this year, that’s exactly what happened to Domini Kemp. She’s a well-known chef, writer, co-owner of the Itsa
    food company chain, as well as being a mother of two daughters.

    She talks to Miriam about her experience.

    Stephen Grosz

    Stephen Grosz is a psychoanalyst and an author of The Examined Life – How We Lose and Find Ourselves, a Sunday Times bestseller... For the past 25 years he has been helping people to make sense of their lives...

    The Examined Life is about one ordinary process: talking, listening and understanding. The thirty one stories found in this collection read like exquisite works of fiction. They also unveil a delicate self-portrait of the analyst at work, and show how lessons learned in the consulting room can reveal as much to him as to the patient.

    There are stories about our everyday lives: they are about the people we love and the lies that we tell; the changes we bear, and the grief. Ultimately, they show us not only how we lose ourselves but how we might find ourselves too. http://www.stephengrosz.com
