This week’s Poem of the Week is Family Law, by Annemarie Ní Churreáin, brought to you in association with the Poetry Programme on RTÉ Radio 1.

In this Poetry Programme video, funded by RTÉ Radio 1 and the Office of Public Works, and made in association with Poetry Ireland, poet Annemarie Ní Churreáin reads her poem Family Law.
