Damn Egypts

Minister for tourism Leo Varadkar and Niall Gibbons, of Tourism ireland, celebrating earlier the greening of worldwide landmarks this St Patrick’s Day.

Hang on.

Now they’re trying to piggy back on Aidan’s buke.

They will stop at NOTHING.

They said it shouldn’t be done.

But what do ‘they’ know?

The Broadsheet Book of Unspecified Things That Look Like Ireland (New Island) Edited by Aidan Coughlan, has literally ‘gone to press this morning.

It should be ready to purchase off the shelves by March 17.

The above cover was finally chosen after many tantrums, stormouts and resignations some discussion.

Thankfully it was a quiet night on the ‘news’ front.

Ah here.

Broadsheet’s Aidan Coughlan (he of the US Election night bike trauma) is currently in high level negotiations with New Island books to bring this little gangster out before St Patrick’s Day.

He’s also contacting those of you who sent in unspecified items that look like Ireland to secure YOUR permission to use YOUR images in this lavishly illustrated coffee cup holder companion.

That’s not all.

Should the absurd endeavour make any money we will give it to a selected charidee of YOUR choice. Please send deserving causes suggestions marked ‘Ireland Charity Book” to Broadsheet@broadsheet.ie (before Monday 7am).

Also: green or red?
