In Irish Student Press next issue

Am in Irish Student Press, well the next issue anyway. Couple of days ago the editor asked me to write an article in Irish and two book reviews and also provide strips in Irish. One wet his pants but agreed to do it. I kind of suceeded (with a lot of help from Gabriel Rosenstock (Go raibh maith agat Gabriel) who proofed my bad Irish but I think I am getting there). All very short notice so I looked back in my file of comic strips and stuff to see what I could come up with. I threw something together anyway with old stuff from years ago and used it as a way to promote Coimicí Gael as it's distributed directly to secondary school students. To be honest I wish I had time to redraw them but here they are:

How do you do that link thing that everyone seems to be able to do on this thing. As in to see the images better. I have not used this that much for images. I think that's going to change soon as I am itching to get drawing again I haven't drawn anything consistently in months.

Issue 2 is coming together and we are on Facebook

Hiya all. Issue 2 is coming together slowly but surely. We should have the second issue out within the month, fingers crossed and all that malarkey. However I am pleased to announce a fan page has been set up for Rírá on Facebook. I will not take credit for starting it up. It was Mike Lynch our esteemed writer/co-creator of Dúréalta (Blackstar) a new Irish superhero strip in Rírá (he is also published in Futurequake who do science fiction comics as well so check that out too). If you wish to check it out click on this line of blue writing:

Also the kind people of Oideas Gael in Donegal have put us on their shelves. Oideas Gael provide imersion holiday breaks or courses for people to go and speak Irish on a regular basis in a spectacular area of Donegal ( so we are now available to buy from them also in their shop. I was talking to Liam on the phone there and he seems like a really nice fella had a great chat. They cover everyone from the very beginner in Irish to the intermediate level speakers so if you've any interest at all give them a bell. If anyone is in their area check out:

So that's it for now I think. Um apart from I am writing and speaking Irish more and more. I know I haven't done any Irish language blogs here but I will in the near future. I swear. Beidh siad ann go luath.
