Seamus Heaney, Nobel Laureate gave a special reading to a crowd of enchanted listeners at the Centre Culturel in Paris.

The event  began with a short exchange between Jacques Darras, (Président du Marché), Philippe Hersant (Seamus Heaney’s translator) and Seamus Heaney himself. This will be followed by readings - three readings of 15 mins each from Seamus Heaney, interspersed with two of 8 mins each in French.


The reading was  presented as part of Culture Connects, the Culture Programme celebrating Ireland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
