Seamus Heaney: Listen Now Again

We are delighted that our "Seamus Heaney: Listen Now Again" exhibition is now open. The exhibition is at the new Bank of Ireland Cultural and Heritage Centre at College Green – entrance via Westmoreland Street. The exhibition will run for three years.

Free entry. Open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm. Last admission is 3.30pm.

A partnership project between the NLI, the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and Bank of Ireland, the exhibition draws on the National Library’s extensive archive of Heaney documents and features Heaney’s original manuscripts as well as letters, unpublished works, diary entries, photographs, note books, and multi-media recordings.

This is the first exhibition to be housed in the new Bank of Ireland Cultural and Heritage Centre within Bank of Ireland’s College Green complex. Curated by Professor Geraldine Higgins, Director of Irish Studies at Emory University, and designed by Ralph Appelbaum and Associates, the exhibition takes the visitor on a multi-sensory journey from Heaney’s origins through his remarkable poetic career.
