The Ten Flames

The Ten Flames

Ten flames that flickered
in the dark

Became the light
became the spark

That ignited vision
that ignited change

That brought us hope
that brought us power

To change the way
to change the field

To have our say
to plant our seed

Ten flickering fires that spread into one flame:
we remember now each one by name, knowing that we will never see a fire like them again!
Bobby Sands, Francis Hughes, Raymond McCreesh, Patsy O’Hara, Joe McDonnell, Martin Hurson, Kevin Lynch, Kieran Doherty, Thomas McElwee, Mickey Devine.
