Ballinderry Sword

By Hannah Best, 6th Class

Object No. 36 Ballinderry sword, mid-ninth century
National Museum of Ireland - Archaeology

A weapon made for war, 

my stab was very sore, 

covered in Celtic designs and wiggly lines, 

I wasn’t made for the poor.

Part of a rough Viking band, 

all of them had me in hand, 

I shed lots of blood, a body part flood, 

scattered all over the land.
