Guest Book Highlights

April 28, 2014 "Dear Mrs. Heaney,
I am so sorry for the loss of your husband. Even though I did not know him personally I feel a great connection to Ireland through his poetry. I have declaimed two of his poems this year at school; "Digging" and "Exposure". I like these poems because they bring me back to Ireland, where both of my parents were born. Your husband was a great poet and will remain in Irish history forever. Seamus was an inspiration to me and many others. He will be missed very much by all people around the world.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilis.
