Reclaim the Vision of 1916 – a Citizens’ Initiative

International Poetry Competition 2016 Result

THEME: The Vision of 1916: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Inspired by the strong connections between poetry and the Easter Rising – often known
as the “Poets’ Revolution” – we are proud to announce that our International Poetry
Competition 2016 is now completed and we are ready to announce the winners.

Many of the Rising’s leaders were accomplished poets, including Pádraic Pearse, Joseph Mary Plunkett, James Connolly – and the eminent ThomasMacDonagh. Also
acclaimed for his talents as a teacher, playwright, Irish language scholar, and literary theorist, it is in MacDonagh’s honour that we have chosen for the competition’s first
prize, the Robert Ballagh-designed Thomas MacDonagh Medal (along with a cash award of €1,000).

In its aftermath, the Rising motivated a generation of poets of national and international renown – includingd George Russell (AE), Francis Ledwidge, Padraic Colum, James Stephens, Sean O’Casey, Eva Gore-Booth and William Butler Yeats – to reflect upon its ideals, events, men and women, and consequences. Alongside these can be placed a

succession of Irish language poets that includes Liam S Gógan, Máirtín Ó Direáin, Seán Ó Ríordáin, Máire Mhac an tSaoi, Eoghan Ó Tuairisc and Seán Ó Tuama.

The competition was open to persons over the age of sixteen years living on the island of Ireland or abroad. We were delighted to receive a large number of entries.

Poems were in English, Irish, or any of the languages in common use in Ireland today (with either English or Irish translations).

JUDGES
Poets Catherine Ann Cullen and Louis de Paor and writer and Ciaran Carty editor of the Hennessy New Irish Writing page in the Irish Times.

Professor Michael Cronin acted as the competition’s Languages’ Advisor.

Easter Mourning –Derek Collins

In sighed awl red, now read and bleed if you must and you must
Foresee in this, you can believe that we can see that we can seed
That we can cede, we can concede
You must believe we can achieve some greater good beyond this hood
Beyond this little minded… call it what you… Crips against the Bloods
The Catholic, the Protestant
The state of meant, the state of should
The state of you, the state of me
The state of liber-fucking-ty
Who’s fooling who, hear people’s rights?
Democracy?
I don’t see you making a change
Are you talking to me?
Annnnd that’s what it comes down to see
Our parents broke their backs in bits so that we could be safe and warm
And sheltered from the same old storm
And that’s been raging since the day and before then, when I was born
And before we let it rage, we’re in a cage, blind little rats
The fuckers watch us spend our lot and toy our wounds like feral cats
Not skinny either, Fucker’s fat
Believe in that, Cause that’s a fact
Controlling you – Controlling me
Is this the land here of the free?
I don’t feel free , I don’t feel safe
Ahh start again, deny the rape
And round and round and round we go
And poor befuddled stupid Joe and stupid Jill
Who pays the bill?
We always will
Until, you see, until you be
I don’t want another child here
To need to need to plead to be
What?! We leave this proud history
Until these fields that we have sown
Renounce this shit, denounce, disown
But we don’t learn – we think we earn
But all we do is bury me, and bury you
And that’s the truth
It’s time to get up now – That’s the alarm
Get up t’fuck

Matriarch  — Sinead Griffin
Great-grandmother, Grainne
1882-1978

Carved with the crevices of time and history,
Her face was a rocky precipice.
Each generation since seemed diminished.

Put to sit with her, you didn’t fidget,
Didn’t speak. Tight-lipped, she’d stare into the fire,
Far eyes that resisted the distance back.

Her room behind the front porch was a shut door.
Unless a rare errand up the stone step,
Let you push the metal latch, open a glimpse.

A three-mirrored vanity fanned the lattice,
Its mahogany laid over with lace,
A squat white bottle of Anaïs Anaïs.

Brooches, trinkets, letters with strange stamps.
The faded sepia of a man,
A pack of cigarettes in a drawer.

Trust relics, God, the Pope, the dead.
Sing to those that died for Ireland,
Her own stories she’d never bequeath.

Words spoken can curl into consequence,
Stories a territory better kept close,
Brought with her to the hillside at Cruagh.

—————

Death of Cuchulainn? — Michael Casey

Like the Pieta, the statue is impossible;
as such an angle the body could not
be held by those bindings, by sinews,
or be the sword-arm that circles the rock.
Generations of loss and fore-knowledge
of overwhelming force, too bravely dismissed,
strain for balance in the body’s canted form.
Is there a flicker left to keep the fight alive,
as Prometheus tried to survive the rage of gods
thrown into vengeful confusion by his valour?
Despite the terrible slump of head, a hero
does not die completely even when leached
of war frenzy or when the scald-crow leaves
the black cavern and descends in final betrayal
with a wounding kiss of its tainted beak,
and sword and shield begin to slip from grasp
and with them all inspiring urges of the heart.
Where the heroism in an empire winning?
Victors know one thing; the defeated many things
among them this: every war is won as well as lost.
Was it mere drama to unveil the deeper truth
to observers lining the road to Calvary? Even so,
it will suffice if the promise of revival holds.

Reibiliúnach–  Proinsias Mac A’Bhaird

Ní thugann staraithe le fios
cé acu ar shil sé deor

Luaitear an phaidir

an chrógacht ina shúil.
Deirtear gur mhaith sé

gur fháiltigh go lúcháireach

Samhlaím gur chrith a chroí ann

déarfainn gur lúb a ghlúin
gur scaoileadh a mhún

gur chorraigh a cholainn

Breast iad a dhéanann mórtas as gaisce éaga

Mo cheol thú, a reibiliúnaí,

RECLAIM 1916 MARCH, PAGEANT AND FREE OPEN AIR CONCERT

Merrion Square at 2pm setting out to the GPO for 3pm

April 24, 2016

Join the parade* with Panti Bliss, Stephen Rea, Fionnuala Flanagan, Adrian Dunbar, Donal Lunny, Damien Dempsey, Don Baker, Frances Black, Laoise Kelly, Sibéal Ní Chasaide  

People’s event celebrates 1916 Rising and urges all to work towards its vision of ‘a republic of equality and opportunity with nobody marginalised’

On Sunday, April 24th well-known actors, musicians and dancers with a wide range of community groups reflecting the diversity of modern Ireland join forces for the Reclaim 1916 parade, pageant and festival. The event opens in Merrion Square at 2pm and makes its way to the GPO where actor Adrian Dunbar hosts a festival of music, dance and readings. This event marks the Easter Rising and seeks a commitment towards realising its vision in modern Ireland.

Actor Stephen Rea and Fionnuala Flanagan, along with Panti Bliss and Stephen Murphy, will give readings. Musician Donal Lunny will play a piece he composed solely for the occasion. Singers include Don Baker, Frances Black and  Damien Dempsey. Sibéal Ní Chasaide, who wowed viewers of RTE’s Centenary programme with her haunting rendition of Mise Éire, will also perform.  Award-winning uilleann piper Tiarnain Ó Duinchinn, harpists Laoise Kelly and Michelle Mulcahy, and flautist Emer Mayock will join them. Champion Sean-Nós dancer Sibéal Davitt is sure to keep the crowd on their toes!

Parade participants, including representatives of Ireland’s new communities, will highlight the vision of the 1916 Proclamation for religious and civil liberties and equal rights for all. Travellers, residents of Direct Provision, disability and women’s groups and Clery’s workers will underline the work still needed to achieve this.

The Proclamation’s desire for ownership of Irish resources to be vested in the people will be endorsed by groups including Right to Water and Shell to Sea.

Organised by Reclaim the Vision of 1916, an independent, non-party political, non-profit making citizens’ initiative, the event aims to ensure the 1916 centenary is commemorated and celebrated in an appropriate and relevant manner.

RV1916 Chairman Robert Ballagh said: “We believe it is only right and proper, at this historic time, for the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who fought in 1916 to be marked with dignity and respect.”

Mr Ballagh stressed: “It would be a disservice to their memory if we failed to recognise why they did what they did in the first place. These people were not merely rebels, they were visionaries calling for revolution and a complete transformation of Irish society.

“The blueprint for that vision was set out in the Proclamation which declared a proper republic in which the common good would be the guiding principle of government.  This republic guaranteed civil and religious liberties and equal rights and opportunities to all citizens, men and women alike.  Sadly, however the vision of 1916 has never been fully realised and the Irish people have been forced to bear the consequences of political, social, economic and cultural failure.”

“Reclaim the Vision of 1916 will give all citizens the opportunity to gather on 24th April in celebration of that golden moment in our history and in so doing, create a platform for the republic that successive governments have failed to deliver.  A republic of equality and opportunity with nobody marginalised, left behind or forgotten or forced through economic circumstance to flee the country of their birth.”

Interviews on the day and pre-records available on request.
