A mere taste of the hilarious, sometimes plain terrifying gifs of Paris-based Illustrator and animator Nicolas Monserrat

Most are too big to post here but you can (and should) see the full collection here.

We especially like this one.


Two hours of unbridled natter.

A heart-felt thank you to, clockwise from top left: Johnny Keenan; ‘Preposterous‘; Olga Cronin, Mark Dempsey, Vanessa Foran and Luke Brennan, our panel on last night’s Broadsheet on the Telly.

It was our 40th episode and can be viewed in its entirety above.

And what a night it was.

With a General Election looming over proceedings, Olga guided us through the latest twists in the Maurice McCabe saga, Mark (speaking from a house party) discussed his project to galvanise the 900,000 people renting in the Republic of Ireland and Vanessa predicted the next FF leader may be a…ladyperson. Luke and Johnny, meanwhile, spent the night chopped up the contents of a large baggie of high grade ‘chat’ for all to share.

Some choice language.

Unsuitable for young adults.

They’re going to scrutinise us.

A stocking filler with a difference.

No Fixed Abode is a group exhibition of donated homeless-themed works in aid of the Peter McVerry Trust at Copper House Gallery, Saint Kevins Cottages, Synge Street, Dublin 8 running until December 22.

Donna writes:

In The Copper House Gallery, we are holding a special Christmas launch on Wednesday, December 6 to encourage people to come along and support the great and essential work of The Peter McVerry Trust by buying an original piece of art.

Over 120 artists have donated their pieces to the exhibition and 100% of the proceeds go to The Peter McVerry Trust. All the works are priced to sell with some well known names. There is a style and a price range to suit everyone so this year why not give the gift of original art?

You can check a name off your Christmas list, support original Irish artists and raise funds that go directly to combat the escalating homelessness crisis. If you can make it to the launch on the 6th December, you can do it all with a Christmas beverage in hand!
