When the War is Over

Even when she’s not working on the Poetry Programme, Claire Cunningham can’t escape from poets, it seems. Her documentary ‘When the War is Over’, about the life and work of poet Francis Ledwidge, will be broadcast on RTÉ lyric fm on Friday 23 June at 7 pm. Ledwidge was killed in Flanders on 31 July 1917, just weeks before his 30th birthday. He left a rich legacy of nature and war poetry, and a sense of the loss of so much more that he might have achieved had he not died in the horror of World War I.
