The results are in.

Last week, with a rude Jam Art Print by Vadge of Honour on offer, we asked for your favourite nickname for your private parts.

Reader Missred won a print with this handy moniker:

‘I find gicker or guthar (both said in a proper Dub accent) to work the best in any situation. “Your gicker is showing” sums up an awful lot. Well, not in front of the family. The word “thingy” was used when I was a kid for one’s growler.’

Splutter.

Thanks all.

‘sup?

Last week, with a A2 limited edition giclée print, “Fox Family, St. Patrick’s Cathedral” (above) by artist Dora Hurley from the Jam Art Factory on offer, we asked for your best story, anecdote or memory about city-dwelling animals.

There were many excellent tails tales, but Mark at Jam Art was particularly taken by Paddy Apathy‘s entry.

Paddy wrote:

‘I Shared a flat with my sister and her boyfriend when I came to Dublin first, spring 1990, Leinster Road. Every other morning I heard muffled woo-hoo type noises from their bedroom, which I understood to be them having a morning shag. After a couple of horrified weeks they decided to go away for the weekend. But that Saturday morning I heard the same woo-hoo noises. Intrigued and more than a little curious I went into their room, no-one there. I opened the curtains. To my surprise and delight I found a lone pigeon perched there doing what pigeons do I suppose. Woo-hoo, woo-hoo.’

Well done, Paddy and thanks all

“Toes” by Marta Barcikowska

The results are in.

Last week, with a “Toes” A2 limited edition giclée print by Galway based designer Marta Barcikowska (available at Jam Art Prints) on offer, we asked for your favourite place to swim in Ireland and why.

After much deliberation…

Rosette of Sirius won with a coastal choice way out wesht, writing:

‘My parents well my Dad, had the foresight to buy land between Furbo and Spiddal [Connemara, county Galway] in the 70s when you quite simply could not give it away. A few family houses were subsequently built and and we’ve been coming to this neck of the woods ever since. I wanted something further afield, hence I get to play/swim closer to Roundstone. The biking and hiking at the pins is a lot better too. Glorious. Even the Winter is special. It’s hard, and it makes your work for it but Jesus it’s makes you feel… Irish.’

Fight!

Maxi’s Dublin Pubs

The results are in.

You may recall our recent Jam Art Prints competitions.

First up, we offered a pub print (above) by designer and artist Maxi to whoever could dream up the most amusing pub name.

Italia’90 won over the judges with this topical collection of Bodger-baiting hostelries:

‘Jabbey Tavern; Tony Holoney’s Boloney Bar; Bodgers and Gammonsteins; Lemmings and Dupes; Gullible Taverns; Johnny Dangerously Ryans; The Ratlicker Lodge and Vaxxie Dargle’s.’

Hic.

Meanwhile…

Paddy Duffy’s Stella Cinema

With a beautiful cinema print by Paddy Duffy on offer, we asked you for your most memorable ‘flea-pit’ experience.

After much deliberation the print went to Barry Hartigan, who recalled:

‘Back in the autumn on 1991 I rolled out of some disreputable night club with a pal in the wee small hours of the morning and in a fit of inspiration we decided to go see The Commitments! When the film opened the Savoy on O’Connell St had it exclusively for a week and as a PR stunt they were showing it around the clock in their No 1 cinema. We got there at 3am, give or take, and managed to get to get 2 of the last few tickets. The cinema held almost 800 people and it was packed. I had already seen the film which was handy as it was practically impossible to follow due to the exuberance of the pissed up crowd.
Watching a fun film like that with a crowd that roared at every joke and sang along to every song, whether they knew the words or not, was an amazing experience The sheer joy of those two hours is something I’ve never experienced since in a cinema anywhere in the world. Only in Dublin…’

Well done Barry and Italia’90.

Print responsibly.
