Description

Seamus Heaney Symposium -

Along with his 2 sons, Mick and Chris we are curating a very special evening to celebrate the life of Seamus, and the publication of the newest anthology, 100 poems, selected by his family

Guests on the night will include his 2 sons, Mick Heaney and Chris Heaney, alsong with guest readers, Colin Devlin and Patrick Kielty, with special musical guest, acclaimed Irish Fiddle player, Colm Mac Con Iomaire.


“Seamus Heaney had the idea to form a personal selection of poems from across the entire arc of his writing life, small yet comprehensive enough to serve as an introduction for all comers. He never managed to do this himself, and no other edition exists which has such a broad range, drawing from first to last of his prize-winning collections. But now, finally, the project has been returned to, resulting in an intimate gathering of poems chosen and introduced by the Heaney family. In 100 Poems, readers will enjoy the most loved and celebrated poems, as well as discovering new favourites. It is a singular and welcoming anthology, reaching out far and wide, now and for years to come.”
