The Archbishop of Dublin Pays Tribute To Seamus Heaney

Press Releases

Added on 02/09/2013

From the Most Revd Dr Michael Jackson, Archbishop of Dublin:

“Seamus Heaney not only touched the hearts and minds of countless people in Ireland and abroad, he was an ambassador of ideas and of their integrity everywhere anyone read one of his poems.

“He combined critical acumen with classical literary discipline, bringing to bear on the land he loved and its people North and South the depth of his insight, charm and compassion.

“His work straddled two centuries and two millennia and he carried us lyrically to places we had never been before.”
