‘When hope and history rhyme’ – Seamus Heaney and ‘The Troubles’

October 7 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

Seamus Heaney grew up in Northern Ireland and his emergence as a successful young poet coincided with the outbreak of ‘The Troubles’.

In his lecture, Dr Michael Keyes looks at how Seamus Heaney’s work was influenced by the Northern Ireland troubles and how in turn his voice became an influential one as the troubles inched towards a peaceful resolution.

This event will have Irish Sign Language interpretation by Pauline McMahon.
