    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.

    The Five Second Rule

    We've all heard of the 'five-second rule' which implies that something is still OK to eat after being dropped on the ground, if it's only been there for less than five seconds! This has been widely disputed as a myth, until now. Joining John on the line this morning is Professor in Microbiology at Aston University in Birmingham, Anthony Hilton.

    Survivor Paddington Train Crash

    John's next guest was horrifically burnt in a British train crash. Her face was so badly damaged that she had to wear a surgical mask designed to prevent the formation of scar tissue on her face. She not only survived but went on to campaign for the truth behind the accident. Pam Warren joins John from a studio in the UK.
