The Written Word - in Irish Independent Jan 24th Leaving Certificate English supplement 2019

Both WB Yeats and Seamus Heaney are on the Leaving Certificated English curriculum this year and Yeats Society Sligo is pleased to lend support to students of these great poets. We have emphasised the great joy that poetry can bring to students through their lives. We have also chosen some of both poet's work to examine in closer detail and, hopefully to provide inspiration as you study.

We want too to encourage all students to 'pull out words that are different, let your imagination run with the verses to paint pictures in the mind and allow the work to create a meaning for you, as great poetry can - in the summer of 2019 and for the rest of your life.'
