Patriotic cartoonist Fergal McCarthy (left) left launches an exhibition, sponsored by Luas Cross City, of illustrations from his Easter Rising comic book 1916: A Country is Born (see link below) now showing at Little Museum of Dublin with tricolour-loving tykes from left: Benjamin White and Dash McCarthy.

You might recall Fergal from his ingenious one-man-in the-River Liffey show in 2012

That’s why he glows.

I’m over in Toronto with half the country and thought you might like an emigrant success story. My girlfriend works for an App start-up called MyKrd that launched a global logo design contest. I posted the contest on a Facebook group for Irish in Toronto, and it was won yesterday by Irishman Tom Bourke (I believe he also designed a Le Cool Dublin cover back in the day). Anyway, yesterday he was handed a giant cheque for 10,000 Canuckian Dollars. It’s tough getting going abroad by it can be done!

Fair ply, in frness.

Much demand for Hartford, Connecticut anyone?
