The Stolen Child…in memory of half a million children of Iraq who will never grow up.
Willie Yeats is one of my favourite poets.

The words of Madeline Albright, US Secretary of State, burns in my heart…500,000 dead Iraqi children “was worth it”…
Autumn and the changing light…that’s my favourite aspect to the season.

Cow Parsley…this will stand for most of the Autumn and sometimes into the winter.
Spiders will spin webs and leave a fairy-like strands that connect the skeletal shapes.

Ireland now holds the Presidency of the EU.
Ireland can make a difference…or be complicit in the genocide of a nation.
Ireland should know better!
If you get close enough to Tony Blair to attempt a peaceful citizen’s arrest, you will qualify for the reward which has already been paid a number of times.
