Offered without comment, Mark Durkan’s tribute to Seamus Heaney

That this House mourns the passing of Seamus Heaney, great poet, most gentle man of deep humility, high honour and wide-smiled humour, whose cadent, lyrical, ethereal and earthed verse voiced a special spokesperson for the natured heart of humanity, whose warm, wise way epitomised a soul-uncle for all touched by his charming presence or reached by his stirring, stilling words who had the grace of genius and who showed the genius of grace.

[Where’s that red biro when you really need it! – Ed] Sssshh!!

    The muse makes merry with Mark but there’s method in his madness – alliteration rules, o.k. ?
