The Irish and Other Foreigners
The brilliant Shane Hegarty recently completed his third book called The Irish and Other Foreigners and I jumped at the chance to do the cover illustration when he asked me. A few years ago I used to draw a weekly illustration for his column in the Irish times magazine called Irisholgy so it was great fun to be back working with him.
He looks at what we think we know about the first Irish, where they came from and why they seem to have landed here long after they colonised our neighbours all the way up to modern immigration and emigration. A fascinating, informative and really funny read I tell you.
It will be available at the end of the month.
