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

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!
