SDLP MLA for Culture, Arts and Leisure has paid tribute to Nobel Prize winning poet Seamus Heaney who passed away this morning in Dublin. Speaking to Newry Times, McKevitt said, “The news that Seamus Heaney has died will be met with great sadness by people on this Island and across the world who held him in such high esteem. “His work touched the hearts and minds of people across the globe and culminated in his receiving the Nobel Prize for literature in 1995. “Only two weeks ago Seamus Heaney attended the Merriman summer school in Lisdoonvarna which showed his continued dedication to his craft. McKevitt added, “I have no doubt that his body of work will continue to inspire and uplift all those who responded to his thoughtful and profound pieces of work.”
