We propose to write, script and film a new bardic poem that incorporates the War of Independence and the Civil War that will be respectful of all communities and traditions - a work of art not tied to a specific incident. A work that carries a universal message of heroism and hope.
A Memory of War will incorporate bardic poetry, acting, the visual magnificence of Mayo in drone footage and art of film to create a powerful emotional film work to remember the past conflict and the long peace that has since ensued in Mayo. Part of the poem will be as Gaeilge.
Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
