Coming Summer 2018: Exhibition "Seamus Heaney: Listen Now Again"

We are delighted that we will be opening the exhibition "Seamus Heaney: Listen Now Again" at the new Bank of Ireland Cultural and Heritage Centre at College Green in Summer 2018. Join our special mailing list to keep updated and watch a new video introducing this exciting project.

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Library’s extensive archive of Heaney documents and will feature Heaney’s original manuscripts as well as letters, unpublished works, diary entries, photographs, note books and multi-media recordings.

The exhibition will be 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 will take the visitor on a multi-sensory journey from Heaney’s origins through his remarkable poetic career.
