Seamus Heaney, 1939-2013

The Board and the Director of the National Library of Ireland (NLI) have learned with great sadness of the death of Nobel Laureate Dr Seamus Heaney, and extends deepest sympathy to his wife Marie, and to his family and friends.

 Seamus Heaney’s contribution to the artistic and cultural life of the Irish nation was extraordinary.   We would particularly like to acknowledge his generosity in donating his literary papers to the National Library in 2011, as well as his support for the NLI over many decades.
