Liveline listeners shared their stories of encounters with Seamus Heaney and read their favourite Seamus Heaney poem as they mourned his passing today.

According to figures just released 243 people leave Ireland every day. Brendan is home on holidays from Colombia where he emigrated to in 2011 – he wanted to share his passion for travel.

Michael McCullagh took exception to some UK airports asking passengers coming off flights from Ireland been told to keep their boarding pass with them until they pass through the immigration channel. He wrote to the home office and the chief of police and in the end he went all the way to the European commission to get the situation clarified.

Random acts of kindness continued today with Lucy and Noeleen telling their tales of kind strangers.
