‘More!’ poem video

It’s lovely to have one of your poems read by someone else, especially a younger voice – so thanks to Grainne & friends and to Roj for making the film. The poem was a modern take on the ‘Food glorious food’ moment in the film, Oliver and was part of  a stage-play ‘More!’ devised with TY pupils from Colaiste Enda in Galway for an Afri (Action from Ireland) conference on food security – linking hunger and famine with war and conflict.
