Adrian Dunbar & Catherine Heaney: Seamus Heaney - A Living Legacy

Sorry, this event has sold out

Part of the legacy of a great writer is that the work lives on and continues to move and inspire both readers and writers. That’s certainly the case with Seamus Heaney. Catherine Heaney discusses the role of Seamus Heaney’s family in shaping his legacy and actor Adrian Dunbar explains why the poetry means so much to him.

Adrian Dunbar’s films include The Crying Game and Hear My Song. Most recently on television he has played Superintendent Ted Hastings in Line of Duty. Catherine Heaney is the daughter of Seamus Heaney and Director of her father’s literary estate.

'In the din of acclaim, he never lost his clarity of perception, nor as a poet among poets his generosity of spirit. He gave us what he once said he looked for in Mandelstam, “poetry that is not only pleasurably right but compellingly wise"' - Gerard Smyth on Seamus Heaney, Poetry Ireland.

Event chaired by Lucy Scholes.
