Via Dublin Airport:

The ‘Out of the Marvellous’ Heaney tapestry being hung in T2 last night for today’s unveiling by Paul Simon.”

Up close?


The tapestry was paid for by a group of the poet’s admirers, including Paul Simon and U2 lead singer, Bono. It was designed by Czech artist Peter Sís and features lines from Heaney’s poem Lightenings VIII.”

Couldn’t find an Irish artist to do that?
