Artistic praise for 'legend' Adams

This month's issue of 'An Phoblacht' contains a lively interview with Irish artist Kevin Sharkey, who joined the ranks of Sinn Fein last September – and it looks as if he's embracing his new political family with marked enthusiasm.

"Gerry Adams, legend, absolute f***ing legend," he reckons. "I grew up with Fianna Fail, Fine Gael and the usual and my family and people around me voted that way but, ultimately, it's the same old show, it's the same old thing."

Such enthusiasm can only gladden the heart of Grizzly – it's only a wonder that the party didn't try and persuade the outspoken artist to throw his beret into the ring for the local elections.

But perhaps he's waiting for the broader canvas of the general election further down the road.
