The leaflet going around the area with the Clár for the events has a very good poem from, I presume a budding poet in the Doyle Youth Club, I like the second verse of his/her poem,
"If you come from our neighbouring area
or even across the bridge
we will sing you a song and make no fuss
whoever you are, you are one of us"
nach fíor í sin?!
