Poetry By The Shannon

This project, undertaken in Carrick on Shannon N.S, in 2010 was a great favourite of mine, not just because I enjoy creating poetry with enthusiastic and creative young people, but because the project was based on a favourite story of mine. I was also very impressed with the standard of poetry produced by the girls with theactive support of the teachers.
These pages will include the story that inspired the highly visual and unusual poetry, including "The Water is Mine", "Sinann's Dance" and the "River Rap" ...
