A Poem for Ireland

RTE is currently running 'A Poem for Ireland', a campaign to find the best-loved Irish poem written in the last 100 years. 
The closing date for nominating a poem is Friday 14th November.Please see http://apoemforireland.rte.ie/ for more details.

The Library would like to publicize this campaign but also find a poem for GMIT. Could you let me know your favourite Irish poem from the last 100 years. The library will do a shortlist of the 10 poems with the most entries and from that list of ten we will ask you to vote for your poem for GMIT.
Please get your entries to bernie.lally@gmit.ie by this Friday, 14th November. We will have a shortlist by Monday 17th November and a winning poem by Friday 21st November, coinciding with the end of Library Ireland Week.
