One poet with massive potential is Jack O’Rourke who penned this tribute to the 1916 Rising. The poem has been performed by members of Bitter Like Lemon theatre company.

Dublin-based Bitter Like Lemon consists of Lee Coffey, Amilia Stewart, Conall Keating, Emily Gillmor Murphy and Garreth Caulfield.

The unfunded company endeavors to produce new Irish writing that will lower the age demographic of Irish Film and Theatre. With the help of some of Ireland's most promising young actors, they have made this video to celebrate the 1916 rising 100 year anniversary and the artistic Irish voice.
