Digital Arts Documentaries Poetry & Media Poetry by Dior

about ‘If only-‘

If only- the poem. I wrote this in 2010 in the days immediately after my first visit. I wanted to commemorate the death of 79 young Irish boys, sons and siblings, who are buried in a remote graveyard next to the Connemara National Park.

I continue to visit the graveyard at least once every summer and bring all my summer visitors there.

If only- the documentary. In 2021 I produced a documentary film in that location as part of a Media Production Traineeship. The performance documentary, although the imperfect work of students, is a piece of reflection and something I am very glad to have captured on film.
