Super Power Poetry Exhibition

14th Sep 2022

Today we welcomed past pupil Joanne to the school. She took part in a poetry project. A fantastic achievement. Below is more information on the project. 

“Five young people from Dublin 15 (aged 4 to 18 years) and their families, were brought together with five poets; John Cummins, Lucinda Jacob, Colm Keegan, Paul Timoney and Jess Traynor; to create a bespoke poem about their family, and about the super power that lives inside every home in the ordinary things they do every day, especially during the challenges that 2021 may have brought their way.

Poetry chats took place thorough a series of outdoor tea meetings, zooms and phone calls during November/December 2021, and January/February/March 2022.

The poems have been individually illustrated by artist Alan Nolan and will be exhibited in Draíocht's First Floor Gallery, before making their way back to their families' homes for good.” Taken from Draiocht Website
