As part of the cultural expression of the Waterford Centenary Programme, VoiceOver Ladies Choir, Dungarvan have partnered with well known local musician Finbarr Keohan to bring to prominence two 1916 poems namely; "I see His blood upon the Rose" by Joseph Mary Plunkett and the "The Wayfarer" by Padraig Pearse.
A brief launch of this unique music will be held in St. Mary's Church of Ireland, Dungarvan.
Venue: St. Mary's Church of Ireland, Dungarvan
Date: Tuesday, 1st March
All are very welcome to attend with light refreshments afterwards.
In 1916, these poems captured the essence of the personal sacrifices made at that time. In putting them to music one hundred years later, Finbarr has ensured that their poignant lines become all the more real. The evocative music married with the words of the poems bring them to life and thus lends itself to broaden and deepen our understanding of the historical significance of 1916.
