You can also hear it here from singer-songwriter John Spillane, a Cork native. For instance, one of my friends in Norway uses the musical hall northern expression “Ee, by gum!” and so, increasingly, does her daughter. Between 1820 and 1920, 4,400,000 people left Ireland. She simply couldn't live without singing. If it hadn't been for Amy Winehouse this list would have been almost empty. Eclectic and challenging, works at the V&A have inspired generations of artists – a feat that has made it a cornerstone of British cultural life.

A coalition government was formed in 1931. [102] The UK entered World War II by declaring war on Germany in 1939, after the Nazis had invaded Poland and Czechoslovakia. The Poor Law Amendment Act created auxiliary workhouses and a system of outdoor relief, but even those measures were aimed to instruct the Irish poor on how to behave (Kissane 83). Often regarded as the ‘transitional’ figure between the early and later soldier-poets, Sorley, like his poem, was unusual for the time. [2] Yet, the poem provides one of the earliest examples of what we now regard as the classic features of First World War poetry: the lyric testimony of the broken body – mouth, eyes, the ‘gashed’ head – set against the abstract rhetoric of honour; the address to the reader (‘you’) that we associate with the poetry of Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, as opposed to the egotistical ‘I’ of Rupert Brooke; the ‘pale battalions’ haunting the shell-shocked dreams of veterans, John Singer Sargent’s dream-like Gassed (1919) and Sigmund Freud’s Beyond the Pleasure Principle (1920), and becoming the iconic image of the war.

In the 1870s several political groups were formed to advance the case for Home Rule. If so, how could the southern government condemn the activities of the Provisional IRA which claimed the same motives and justification as the Easter rebels?

But more importantly his study accounts for the enduring appeal of the pastoral elegy, why poets look to its conventions during times of personal distress and social disharmony, and how it allows them to recover from grief, loss and destruction.
