Video: Lining Out’, a film by RTÉ Sport

I was very much taken by surprise when this video, produced by RTÉ Sport, and built around an audio recording of my poem Lining Out, went viral in September 2018 during the week of the All-ireland Senior Football final, with over a quarter of a million views in a few days.

It’s a testament, I think, to how images can be sensitively matched to words, to make something with a power all its own.
