John hosts and reads at Seamus Heaney 100 Poems event.

Pavillion Theatre. Dún Laoghaire. Readings by Simon Armitage, Paula Meehan, Colette Bryce, Marie Heaney, Mark Doty and John Kelly

Before his death, Seamus had intended to assemble a personal selection of poems from across the entire arc of his writing life, small yet comprehensive enough to serve as an introduction for all comers. He never managed to do this himself but now the 100 Poems project has been completed, resulting in an intimate gathering of poems chosen and introduced by the Heaney family.

To celebrate the publication of 100 Poems, Simon Armitage, Paula Meehan, Colette Bryce, Marie Heaney, Mark Doty and John Kelly read selected Heaney poems. Plus music from Colm Mac Con Iomaire.
