The Irish Writers Centre has commissioned six poems, one for each day of the Rising. These poems will be written and performed by our most influential contemporary poets who will reflect on a significant figure, location or event around the Rising. The poems will be filmed and released during the week of the anniversary. The poets include Jessica Traynor, Thomas McCarthy, Paul Muldoon, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Theo Dorgan. An original score will be composed by Colm Mac Con Iomaire. The films will be made available as an app for download which will take the user to each location where they can watch the video of the poem performed by the Poet. It is confirmed that the poems will also be broadcast on terrestrial TV.
