A Poem for Ireland

The Poem for Ireland microsite from RTE is nicely done, with the texts of the shortlisted poems, comments on them, background, recitals from Poetry Aloud finalists, and the ability to upload material, including performances of the poems.  And, of course, the facility to vote for your favourite poem.

Here's Patrick Kavanagh's 'A Christmas Childhood'.

A reminder to TY pupils that a poem can be part of this year's Work Portfolio (possibly a response to one of those on the shortlist).
