“Ireland Is…”

I’m delighted to share a wonderful video of a poem entitled “Ireland Is…” with you today.  It is a collaborative effort by members of a Facebook group called Oh My God What A Complete Aisling (OMGWACA) and is about how important home is to us all. The lines of the poem were recorded by over eighty members, collated by Aidan Strangeman and edited together by Bob Murphy (my husband!). At times hilarious, unforgiving, nostalgic and moving, it will resonate with people both at home and abroad.

The video has been produced to help raise funds for Focus Ireland, a charity organisation for homelessness, and a fundraising campaign has been set up at this donation page. Please donate as generously as you can for this important cause and do share the link as well!

If the video above won’t play for you, you can view it at this YouTube link as well.

Enjoy and have a very happy Christmas!
