Seamus Heaney

Happy St Patrick’s Day! I thought I’d use it as an excuse to share this video of Seamus Heaney reading and discussing some of his poems;

I’ll write in more detail about one or more of Heaney’s books another time (you won’t be surprised to know that I have several of them on my poetry bookshelf).

I was lucky enough to see him reading from one of his later collections at an event at the Royal Festival Hall on London’s South Bank. More of this, perhaps, on another occasion as I have to get back to the day job in social media management. Truly I am living the dream…
