Ballinderry Sword

By Marta Ledwandowska, 1st year.

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

Because like everything and everyone it is

Always forgotten by time

Long ago feared in

Ireland by now forgotten ones

Now it is left as a memory for the

Dead ones, the ones killing and murdering and the one

Everyone thinks they know but only some

Remember about the brutal way they were living

Remember the things they did

Yet only some care enough to remember the

Sword as a weapon, but now only a symbol to their eyes.

Weatmeath was where it tried to hide, dug

Out of the ground because of the need to know more.

Right now we can only wonder about its past

Don’t you forget now some secrets can’t be found out.
