Ireland is……

“Ireland is…”, a collaborative poem performed by people in Ireland and around the world in aid of Focus Ireland.

On December 5th, Members of a popular Irish Facebook forum (omgwaca) were asked to submit lines about what Ireland means to them, and the most popular submissions were collated into a poem by Aidan Strangeman. Other members (and some of the original writers) from around the world, and in Ireland, sent videos of themselves saying selected lines.

Written by the members of OMGWACA
Collated by Aidan Strangeman
Video produced by Bob Murphy
Music by Hugh Rodgers
“Ireland Is…”
This is a poem about how important home is to all of us. It is disgraceful that so many will be without a home this Christmas. We would ask you to give as generously as you can to this campaign at http://www.tinyurl.com/irelandis, and if you aren’t in a position to donate, please share the video so it can be seen by people who are.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this project.

As if I’m not homesick enough at this time of year! 

P.s If your not a member of OMGWACA join, pure craic! SXx
