Ceiliuradh na Cásca

Le seachtain na Cásca buailte linn, mar daoine a bhaineann le chultúir an cheoil tagann na h-amhráin a bhain le cogadh na saoirse agus dánta a rinne filí an re úd chun cuimhine. Ceiliúradh was the title of the concert in the Royal Albert Hall last week during President Higgin's visit to Britain. With many impressively enjoyable spots including especially those of Joseph O'Connor and Olivia O'Leary, perhaps the Brendan Behan connection and his song The Old Triangle ticked the most boxes.  Glen Hansard's delivery and natural Irish voice, not unlike the late Luke Kelly, was special and inviting to the audience to express themselves in song.  Easter brings to mind many of the songs and poems associated with the 1916 rising. Pearse, McDonagh and  Plunkett have all left us gems with relevance to nature and our existence in this world or in the next. The weather of March and April, a time that has always stumbled between winter and spring is brought to mind in Francis  Ledwidge's poem in memory of Tomás McDonagh: Nor shall he know when loud March blows through slanting snows her fanfare shrill. Blowing to flame the golden cup of many an upset daffodil.
