Dublin poet releases love letter to the Northside

Spoken word artist and poet Emmet O’Brien released his latest piece, a love letter to Dublin’s Northside, on Facebook this week.

 

The performance is just under five minutes long and is set to a backdrop of north Dublin locations shot by Clifford Clifford productions.

The Cabra native opens the video explaining, “the area I grew up in, the people I was around when I was at a young age, it was a more working class area so I think it gave me more of a realistic approach to life and a realistic mind set to life because I experienced things at a young age that most people wouldn’t”.

He went on to say that he’s dedicated this poem to “self expression and always being proud of where you’re from.” O’Brien wrote the piece sitting by the Royal Canal in less than half an hour. He considers it his, “all time best piece” full of “sheer emotion and expression”.
