On the news of the death of Seamus Heaney, Dylan’s granddaughter Hannah Ellis said; “I’m really saddened by the loss of the great poet. His poems will continue to inspire new generations of writers.
Seamus had only recently agreed to be a Patron of Dylan Thomas 100, and offered these kind words about my grandfather: “Hard to believe that these hundred years have passed. If ever there is a centenary worth celebrating, this is it. The force that through the green fuse drives the flower’ still drives those uniquely powered poems.” Our thoughts are with his family.”
