Best Poem of Tomás Ó Cárthaigh

Ireland, Is It But A Notion?

Ireland, is it but a Notion?
Ireland... is it but a notion
Of a land that never was...
But in the dreams of our dreamers...
Who had those dreams because...
The reality of no land
Was for them too much to bear...
And so where there was no land...
They imagined one for themselves there...

The isle of saints and of scholars...
A land of Gaelic and Green
A land where all were of Royalty...
Was it a land that has never has been?
The land of the Celtic Tiger...
So silent to most was its roar...
To those deaf to its bellowing
Life was just as ...
