Iniisfree-Slish wood walk in May (pics left) and today

You may recall the suspiciously started gorse fires in Sligo in May.

Annie West writes:

In the 4 months since that fire Sligo County Council have been doing heroic work to rebuild the Innisfree-Slish Wood walk , it’s open again and Mrs. Nature has been working hard also…

In fireness.

Twitter HQ, Dublin.

Jack Dorsey, co-founder and CEO of Twitter, met a  small group of “the Irish people who use Twitter in different ways to help people”.

Among them was artist Annie West who presented the Twitter boss with her Ireland-shaped #hometovote print (available in the Broadsheet Book Of Unspecified Things That Look LIke Ireland) used during the Same Sex Marriage referendum.

In fairness.

A&E consultant and Totally Sound Bloke Dr. Fergal Hickey was on [RTÉ Radio One’s] Morning Ireland today about this (‘up to 350 people will die needlessly’ if things do not improve in the Irish health service over the next year)….I went off and drew 350 people just to see what that might look like.
