Margadh na Feirme

Fighting Words: A poem by Zuzanna Krzeminska and Julija Bozic, Mount Carmel Secondary School, Rotunda, Dublin 1

Smithfield, the area where joy is created
Where once was livestock and now there's people
The place where people gather
Where everyone matters
The whiff of coffee in the early mornings
Gives everyone a longing
Once known as Margadh na Feirme
A centre of belonging

The Story Seeds project supports young people to write with the aim of enabling them to understand their own life story – their personal, circumstantial and emotional story and their place, be it geographical, social or imaginative.

The pieces included here are a small sample of the creative work from the Story Seeds project.
