You might like this artistic response by the community of Cobh deployed at Saturdays hugely attended anti Irish Water protest march in Dublin. It sent a strong democratic reminder to the FF/FG coalition in everything but name, to act now and abolish the severely regressive Irish Water rip-off.
Being a Dubliner it was a pleasure to meet such a wide ranging group of people that took the trouble to attend the protest who were from all over Ireland. I very briefly spoke with a charming lady from Cobh that highlighted the wonderful community six month effort that went into making the knitted quilt.
The folks that created it had a very wide age range from the very young to the eldest being 104! The middle section at the top depicts the voracious vultures of Alan, Joan and Enda and beside them the dead ducks like the politicians they represent.
On the lower left hand corner we can see two civic minded ordinary decent tax payers protesting against Irish Water and on a poignant note the Garda represented was a long standing member of Cobh who I was assured was very anti Irish Water but unfortunately the gentleman has recently passed away.
I do like the addition of the tiny panda, usually to be found in Fota wild life park. Enjoy yourself casting your eye across the rest of the quilt and you don’t need to be genius to work out the rest!
