Lifetime award for Heaney

December 11, 2008

Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney has received a lifetime achievement award at the centenary charter day celebrations for Queen's University Belfast. The former Queen's lecturer recited the centenary stanza he wrote for the university, which is carved on a stone unveiled by the Queen earlier this year.
