Spire-2

The Spire.

By Annie West, who sez:

“I get the idea when I do the morning walk. Always. Has to be a circuitous walk. I don’t have anything as formal as a sketchbook, that’s far too organised for me. So I scribble on the back of an envelope. Bring the envelope home, scan it, do it again, then again, then sit down with my pencil and my vast array of lovely Dr. Martin’s inks and get to it. I tweet while I wait for layers of ink to dry…”

No horns.

Just pure, historically-sound Viking.

More than 500 Vikings invade St. Anne’s Park, Raheny, Dublin this weekend as Dublin City Council hold a re-enactment of the Battle of Clontarf.

Over 40,000 visitors are expected to witness the Viking hordes and Irish armies slug it out twice daily in DRAMATIC reenactments

To mark this once-in-a-millennium event We have an ‘authentic’ Viking helmet (above)  – as worn by REAL re-enactors and worth nearly €200  – to giveaway.

The helmet, in a durable metal, has the distinctive ‘pillage-friendly’ nose shield and sturdy chin straps to support the unruliest of beard.

To enter, Dublin City Council want YOU to literally create a Viking ‘splash’ by completing this sentence.
