Irish Verse

The Conachlonn is simply the Irish version of chained verse, examples found at Celtia.

The elements of the Conachlonn are:

  1. written in any number of lines.
  2. syllabic at the poet's discretion, often 8 or 9 syllable lines
  3. assonant chained rhymed, meaning the vowel sound of the last syllable of the line is repeated at the beginning of the next line.
  4. written with dunadh, the beginning syllable ends the poem.

    Chained to the Frame by Judi Van Gorder

    Clear is this verse with unique rhyme
    lines to end then begin with same sound.
    bound by little more than a French chain,
    claiming candid words to record here.
