Vincent Sheridan is an artist whose work I’ve admired for years. His prints often depict birds roosting (a familiar sight and sound in Co. Wicklow and the Dublin mountains in autumn). This is a print (10/40) entitled Murmuration I. His work is showing now in The Draíocht, Blanchardstown and features an animation of starlings roosting filmed in Mullingar by the artist: Animation to Murmuration

The thirty year anniversary of Plath’s death has been marked by the release of a number of essays, books and even a short film. Yesterday we read Elm in class. The language and the intensity of the poem are unforgettable. This twenty-three minute film is worth watching if Plath’s poetry interests you. Lady Lazarus Film
