Listen Now Again Live: Free Thursday lunchtime concerts

The concert series at the National Library’s exhibition ‘Seamus Heaney: Listen Now Again’ reflects Heaney’s own love of the interplay of words and music by bringing together a range of creative practitioners.

Taking place each Thursday until the end of September, the series commences on 11th July with a reading by award-winning actor Owen Roe, together with a performance from acclaimed musician Laoise O’Brien.

Each concert will run from 1pm to 1.45pm in the rotunda of the Bank of Ireland Cultural and Heritage Centre, Westmoreland Street, where the exhibition is housed.
