Molly Meleady-Hanley is a 16-year-old Irish girl who lives in Sheffield, her family is from Dublin and West Cork. She was the winner of the 2018/2019 International Never Such Innocence Poetry Competition, which commemorated the First World War. When she was 12, Molly created a glass installation which is presently on display in the Museum. It commemorates her Great-Great Uncle, Patrick Meleady, who fought in the First World War. Patrick died in 1919 and is buried in the St. Patrick's Section of Glasnevin. Molly has since written a poem to commemorate her uncle. It provides an opportunity to reflect on the life of Patrick Meleady and the First World War. She recited it at the recent Armistice Day Commemoration which was held at Glasnevin Cemetery.
