Archive Episode: Ciaran Carson

Season 3, Episode 2,   Jan 18, 2021, 12:20 PM

The Seamus Heaney Centre Podcast is created in a small back room by Stephen Sexton and Rachel Brown. This episode was produced, and featured original music by Conor McCafferty.

The archive recordings were selected from the Seamus Heaney Centre’s audio collection, and featured music by Ciaran and Deirdre Carson, and Padraigin Ni Uallachain, and words from Seamus Heaney and Ciaran himself. With additional readings from Milena Williamson, Dane Holt and Stephen Sexton. Poems by Ciaran Carson are used by kind permission of The Gallery Press and the Estate of Ciaran Carson.

With thanks as always to our guest writers, to Padraigin Ni Uallachain, the Heaney family, the Gallery Press, Gail McConnell, and to Paul Maddern for first collecting these recordings. Special thanks to Deirdre Carson, and the Carson family.
