"I began writing it in a frenzy on the way back from visiting Seamus Heaney Homeplace in Bellaghy... a trip I took with me Ma, both of us overwhelmed with the quality of his work; stunned by its intimacy." Nice to see this mention of SH by @weareaerials in @hotpress @SHHomePlace https://t.co/MTlAEGtd2T

"It rained when it should have snowed. When we went to gather holly the ditches were swimming, we were wet to the knees, our hands were all jags..." SH reads his poem 'Holly', from Station Island. https://t.co/AeS1nCPQK9

'Another storm coming. Under that copper light my papers seem luminous. And over them I will take ever more painstaking care.' Saddened to hear the news that the great Thomas Kinsella has left us, but he leaves behind a great body of work. Rest in peace.
