On  the 28th of January 2017 Kabosh presented a reading of Seamus Heaney’s collection NORTH in Seamus Heaney HomePlace, Bellaghy.


Vincent Higgins and Eileen O’Higgins performed North alongside multi-instrumentalist Dónal O’Connor to a backdrop of images curated by Conleth White.

Paula McFetridge, Artistic Director of Kabosh, said “when asked to stage North we jumped at the opportunity as it is a collection in which the great wordsmith confronted head on the tragedy of the conflict in the north, the depth of sectarianism, the cost of violence. It is emotive on many levels and undoubtedly has resonance for a today’s audiences. This event offers new audiences an opportunity to engage with Heaney’s most controversial collection in the beautiful setting of Seamus Heaney HomePlace, close to the poet’s final resting place.”
