Reading of Eliza Veness’ poem ‘Toilers of the Deep

We had the very great pleasure of speaking to Marie Gillooly of the Roscommon Solstice Choir, some time ago. She wanted to use Toilers of the Deep by Eliza Veness in a memorial service. (Please click this  Link to their Facebook page for the full story.) Fergus Sweeney very kindly sent us this link to the video  Toilers of the Deep Video We feel this poem reaches across time and place and is as relevant now as it was 100 years ago when Eliza originally wrote it.

Copyright remains with Eliza Veness/Hastings Fishermen's Museum for the poem and Copyright remains with Fergus Sweeney for the video. Please ask permission before you share.
