This is really something. 

Poet and playwright Stephen James Smith has a spectacular way with words and expression, and because of this, the people behind the St. Patrick's Day's Festival commissioned him to pen a poem in response to the Festival theme for 2017 which he has entitled ‘My Ireland’. 

It's almost 12 minutes long, but as soon as you start listening, you're absolutely hooked. 

Check it out for yourself:

Woah. That is really bloody powerful. 

Such an incredible mix of old, new, topical, archaic and buzzwords that we feel like we've been hearing forever. 

Really, really worth the watch.
