Fás agus Bás/Growth and Death
Poet Domhnall Mac Síthigh
Art Áine Uí Dhúbhshláine
Calligraphy Bob Ó Cathail
Translation Máire Uí Shíthigh
Domhnall Mac Síthigh wrote the poem Fás agus Bás in 2008 to celebrate his planting of 70 trees – ash and alder. Letter cards were made in 2020 using the poem to support the Dingle Camphill Community’s tree planting project. This community planted 10,000 trees in 2006 east of Dingle. They are presently developing a pathway through their woodland which will be suitable for wheelchair users. All profits accrued from these cards will go towards this project. The cards can be purchased in the following places:
- The Dingle Bookshop
- Jerry Kennedy’s Butcher’s Shop, Dingle
- Siopa an Bhuailtín, Baile an Fheirtéaraigh
- Dingle and Ventry Post Offices
- An Siopa Leabhar, 6 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2
and from www.tigaine.com.
In time they will be more widely available. Most of the cards have an English translation but some the original Irish version only.
