I am at least a quarter Irish so that may speak to why I’ve enjoyed so many of Morgan Llywelyn’s books.

Nobel Laureate and Irish poet Seamus Heaney, whose work affected and influence generations, has died at age 74. Heaney, born in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland, is considered the greatest Irish poet since Yeats. He also was someone I knew as brother-in-law of one of my oldest friends, so the loss hits on a personal level. He and his wife, Marie herself the author of several books including Over Nine Waves, A Book of Irish Legends, lived in Sandymount, Co. Dublin, in a house with gardens overflowing with plants and flowers.
