A rich and colourful celebration of the poetic heritage of Ireland, this CD and book anthology features classic and contemporary Irish poems read by 100 of the best-known voices in Irish life, including Maeve Binchy, Bono, Pierce Brosnan, The Corrs, Bertie Ahern, Bob Geldof, Seamus Heaney, Marian Keyes and Sinead O'Connor.
The collection includes famous poems such as Yeats's 'The Fisherman' and Wilde's 'The Ballad Of Reading Gaol', alongside new work from Ireland's finest living writers.
As well as forming a living testament to the best of Irish writing, the collection is also a reminder that words, both oral and written, do make a difference, with all royalties going to Focus Ireland, the country's largest and most respected charity for the homeless.
