Allie and Daisy

It is so interesting and encouraging to look at what is happening in creative space and in terms of artists - none more so than Allie Sherlock.

With almost 5m subscribers she has more right to speak for Ireland (than many) and so should be appointed our creative Ambassador (and paid by the Govt of Ireland - tighten up now Govt, get into the digital domain ffs)

Over the years I've seen her move from better to great and now to fantastic, so professional so polished... 

I was so impressed with Allie giving space to Daisy a lock of days ago... and so impressed with Daisy - fair play to ya Daisy :-) 

..the Allie Sherlocks channel

so a wee poem


up se Daisy
as old saying
ah jaysus Daisy with Sherlock
such magic
almost like a godfather 
I’ve watched Allie Sherlock grow up
good becoming better becoming fantastic
such hope I feel for Ireland
'away from the maddening crowd'
focusing on the music on the craic
on our unique perspective
up se Daisy the personification
a mighty performance beyond her years
the hug of gratitude saying it all
for all...

Salute to Che Guevara

Che Guevara

Once again... October 9 2021 marks the anniversary of the fall in combat of Ernesto Che Guevara, freedom fighter and legendary guerilla born: June 14, 1928, Rosario, Argentina.

His father Ernest Guevara Lynch said "The first thing to note is that in my son's veins flowed the blood of the Irish rebels", he said in a 1969 interview. He went on: "Che inherited some of the features of our restless ancestors. There was something in his nature which drew him to distant wandering, dangerous adventures and new ideas".

As an Irishman I must again reiterate my immense pride in the fact that Che Guevara has family connections with Ireland.

a toast to Che... y hasta siempre
