    The Best-Loved Irish Poem of the Last 100 Years

    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.

    Gambling with Declan Lynch of Sunday Independent

    John's guest is Declan Lynch, is in studio this morning to discuss gambling & how with so many new & different methods which offer thousands of other possibilities to what was in the past. The more betting you can take part in, the more chances of losing money.


    Along the River Dodder with Victoria White

    John meets up with Victoria White to walk along the Beaver Row section of the Dodder river in Dublin. Victoria cycles & walks along the Dodder as she lives close by, but while being a natural amenity, the river & its banks have become something of a dumping ground.
