There was standing room only at Belfast's Waterstones bookshop last night as Marie Heaney, widow of Nobel Laureate Seamus launched All Through The Night, her new anthology of night poems and lullabies.

Illustrated by designer Paula McGloin, the volume is described by the publishers as a wide-ranging collection of moving and evocative night poems for all stages of life, from tiny tots who battle against bedtime, to grown-ups who yearn for the shelter of untroubled sleep.

Lullabies and other poems relating to children and parenting form the opening section, while the later poems celebrate night-time pleasures and preoccupations.

Published by Poetry Ireland, the book costs £12.99.
