As part of the #ShineYourLight initiative, spoken word from artists including Sinead O'Connor, Paula Meehan and Colm Mac an Iomaire were part of the special night. 

Here is Easter 2020 by poet Paula Meehan, read by Marie Mullen - the accompanying music, Emer's Dream, was written and performed by Colm Mac Con Iomaire. Watch and listen below:

Breath by breath we take the cosmos in

Pulse by pulse, drumbeat of the heart.

The geese flock north, again the swallows come; 

Every plant that flowers, the promise of its seed.

Lit by sun, lit by moon, lit by stars, 

Breath by breath our inner light let shine,

Hand on heart — kin, kindred, kind,

Mortal in earthrise, radiant diamond mind.
