It is one of a number of poems that would not have been written if I had seen the image as it actually was. I wrote a number of poems on the subject of the felos in Galician carnaval (published in a chap-book, Felos aínda serra, by Amastra-N-Gallar, 2004; see link in side panel); I saw the images in black and white; had I seen the many photographs which were in colour I would not have been able to write them.

Canalaphonic is going to feature a huge range of music from jazz to trad to whatever. Pubs from the Bernard Shaw and the Barge out to Mother Reilly's in Upper Rathmines will be hopping on May 8th and 9th.
The stage at Rathmines Plaza (at Rathmines Leisure) will be the focus for trad lovers on Sat afternoon. The street céilí starts at 4. But before that, there's 2 hours of music featuring Eleanor Shanley, Mike Hanrahan, Paul Kelly, Daoirí Farrell, the Dorians and the Ceoltóir Traditional Group BCFE.
Here's the trad line-up for the weekend, and it's all free.
