This artwork depicts the late poet Patrick Kavanagh and the beautiful Hilda Moriarty for which his poem ‘On Raglan Road’ is about. The poem originally named "Dark Haired Miriam Ran Away” laments for his love for Hilda which was not reciprocated by her - She became a Doctor and married Donogh O’Malley. "I will immortalise you in poetry, Hilda." - Kavanagh once said and so he did. The poem has had many versions, most famous of which was sung by Luke Kelly of The Dubliners after Patrick Kavanagh requested he do so.
