The Seamus Heaney Centre Podcast is created in a small back room (and during these times of quarantine, in a series of small back rooms) by Ian Sansom, Stephen Sexton, and Rachel Brown. This episode was produced by Conor McCafferty.

The actors throughout were Jo Dow and Anna Healey, recorded in their homes during the lockdown of spring 2020, with thanks to our lecturer in Creative Writing Michael West.

Thanks as always to our writers, and to Nick Boyle for his music. Special thanks to the Queen's Annual Fund.
