The Ark remembers Seamus Heaney

'The Heaney Tree' back on display at The Ark in tribute to our former Patron.

In memory of the incomparable Seamus Heaney who was the very first Patron of The Ark.

The Ark staff and board of directors are greatly saddened by Seamus' passing and extend their deepest sympathy to his family.

This picture is of The Heaney Tree (Genevieve Murphy & Jon Kelly 1997) from our Poetry Trees Exhibition. All of the poems featured on the tree were selected by Seamus. As a tribute, the Tree will be on display in The Ark foyer.
