Val Hennigan

 

The loss of life and physical devestation of the city of Dublin in the 1916 Rising brought to mind a poem by Thomas Merton " Fable for a  War"

The poet's words inspired this image,

"Caws of Alarm "

"And in the end of all,
Crows will come back and sing the funeral."

'Caws of Alarm', Relief Print: Lino
