Seamus Heaney

We mourn the loss today of Seamus Heaney, one of our great Nobel Laureates and probably the greatest Irish poet since Yeats.   A poet of his time concerned with rural life, politics and culture, his readings were hugely popular though he was far from being a self promoter.    In a land of writers and poets, his star shone and will continue to shine brightly.
