Matthew Edwards Obit: Poet Seamus Heaney (1939-2013) (19) RE: Obit: Poet Seamus Heaney (1939 - 2013) 31 Aug 13

Heaney certainly knew the songs and ballads of his native Ulster well, and he was a great friend of the song collector, singer and broadcaster Davey Hammond for whom he wrote a very moving tribute in "The Human Chain".

Heaney quoted extensively from Magherafelt May Fair in his commencement address at the University of North Carolina in May 1996.
