Seamus Heaney RIP

Images from my Flickr & Instagram streams over the past year and a half


Today we lost a national hero - Seamus Heaney left us much too soon and much too suddenly. My good friend and mentor, Catherine Cronin announced the news with a heavy-hearted tweet and within minutes, our circle of fellow Heaney-admirer, educator friends checked in to share their grief and shock - starting with Pam Moran, Leigh Graves-Wolf, Ira Socol, Hellie Bullock, Mary Ann Reilly, Pam O'Brien, Evelyn O'Connor - and more.

Over the past year and a half, we have shared many wonderful Heaney moments featuring favourite verses, videos, books, readings, book signing adventures and confluences of events, worlds and truths. We have lifted each other's spirits, offered comfort and shared inspiration by sharing his words. Small seedlings of online interaction blossomed into beautiful moments of friendship and understanding across oceans and networks - across space and time.

Thank you, Seamus for all you have given to us and all you have left behind for us still to discover and share. And thank you dear friends x

Ní bheidh a leithéid arís ann.
