May I give a shout-out to Cork illustrator Jason O’Gorman [Dynamite Studio] for a recently  steady stream [on his twitter feed] of everyday and not so every day scenes in Cork city. They capture something about the place. I love them. I know you don’t do this sort of thing, etc../

Name those Cork city locations, from top anyone?

The Miggle D Giggles interactive toy.

Seven (more) years of Giggles.

Dara O’Neill writes:

Conceived by two brothers, Lee and Stevie Russell, who hope to have the first batch of these special dolls ready for the holiday period.

From there, they plan on flooding the whole planet with Miggle D Giggles dolls in an effort to curb cynicism and slow down the melting of banter.

Hopefully this enamel pin that I made might be of some interest to your more discerning readers. They are available on my Etsy store, along with several other prints that will no doubt have widespread appeal.

The Mötherhood t-shirt


It’s a tough gig,

Eavann McCarthy writes:

I was producing rock and metal themed t-shirts for kids with my partner (the big Irishman behind GrandGrand.ie), when I hit upon an idea to do one for mothers which would celebrate how much they rock one of the toughest jobs there is.

Our particular heartbreak came in the form of our son’s cancer diagnosis almost two years ago. Blood Bike Dublin is run and staffed on a 100% voluntary basis and very single Monday morning, regardless of weather conditions,Michael our blood biker arrives at our door and brings our son’s blood samples to Crumlin for testing. Because of this our son gets to go to school like every other 5 year old,

In an effort to give something back to our friends at Blood Bike Dublin and help them to continue doing what they do, we will be donating all of the profits from the sale of this special t-shirt to them.

Screen printed in Irishtown on 100% cotton and are available to buy for €20.

The Rawsaol fire pit.

An original portable design developed by Brendan McCarey and James Cleary for their start-up, Rawsaol in Mullan, County Monaghan.

Brendan writes:

The name Rawsaol is a play on words. Raw meaning we only want to use raw sustainable materials. Saol is the Gaelic word for Life, our end goal is to product beautiful, functional objects for everyday life.

Both of us have a design background, myself in crafted design and James in Industrial design. We started making Swedish log candles last summer and then played around with a few fire pit ideas and from there we created the flat pack fire pit…

In fairness.

Yours for €400

Looking for an unusual, lapel-based, Irish-made gift?

Ed Hannon writes:

Since 2012 ‘Visions of the Past‘ has been dedicated to the promotion and coverage of Irish history, heritage, folklore and the built environment.

To date the website has had over 800k visits and has documented 350 historic sites.

We are passionate about Irish heritage and with this in mind we have decided to commission three talented Irish designers to create some fantastic hard enamel pins and a tote with an Irish folklore focus.

Today we have launched our etsy shop and our first two enamel pins alongside our tote bag.

The first pin is the ‘Hawthorn Tree‘ pin designed by TwoheadedDog Art, a tree closely linked to Irish folklore and fairy lore.

The second is the enigmatic and powerful ‘Sheela Na Gig’ pin designed by Votive Illustration.

The tote is the logo for VOTP and features the bell tower of my favourite Dublin church St Audoen’s. We are already working on further designs and hope to expand the range over the coming months.

Expand the range.
