Peter Fallon In Conversation with Heaney commentator Professor Bernard O' Donoghue

The Gallery Press publisher and poet Peter Fallon talks to leading Heaney critic, poet & Oxford academic, Prof. Bernard O'Donoghue about his long & unique relationship with Seamus Heaney. From being one of the Seamus' first readers to Seamus being best man at Peter's wedding, it is a story of two friends who, in Peter's words, "rode shotgun for each other".

Expect an intimate evening of words & wit in celebration of a singular and deep reaching friendship forged in poetry, people and place.

Peter will also be reading from "Strong, My Love", his first collection in seven years, a series of prayer like poems for family & old friends.
