Awaken your Giant Spirit

  1. Seamus Heaney HomePlace, Word Hoard
    While much of Seamus Heaney’s writing is inspired by words and ways of life specific to this area, his human relationships and household objects, which we bring to the fore in our exhibition, are familiar to many.
    1. A church on an island on Lough Beg
      Church Island is a small island on Lough Beg - 1.5 miles from Bellaghy. On a visit to the island you will discover the ruins of an old church with no spire.
      1. ‘There are few things as refreshing as finding there is another dimension behind the poetry of one so recognised and analysed, and that is what happens on every step of the journey through Heaney’s childhood terrain’ Travel Extra Review October 2014
