    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.

    Dublin v Kerry - Semi-finals

    This Sunday, Dublin and Kerry supporters will mingle in a mix of county colours we've seen plenty of times before - it may be only a semi-final, but there is something about Dublin versus Kerry that makes the whole country sit up & take notice.  Miriam is joined by Listowel man Billy Keane who is in the RnaG studio in beautiful west Kerry & Catherine Halloran, political correspondent with the Irish Daily Star.

    But instead of telling us what’s so great about their native county and why they are going to win, Catherine and Billy are going to tell us today what’s so great about their rival counties
