Seamus Heaney draft poems on display at Queen's University in Belfast

By David Young

Rare drafts of poems by Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney have gone on show at the university where he studied and later taught.

Notebooks belonging to Heaney from his days as a student and professor at Queen's University in Belfast have also been put on public display. They are included in a new exhibition at Queen's Naughton Gallery entitled Changing Lives: Our Specialist Subject.

The Co Londonderry-born poet died in August at the age of 74.

The exhibition tells the story of how Queen's is putting Northern Ireland in the global spotlight.

The free exhibition runs until Friday, November 29.
