Brian's comic based on the Drogheda Fleadh event

A local artist has created a new comic - based on the Fleadh.

Brian Lounds brings rhythm to the pages of his second comic, which sees the Fleadh come to life. The comic centres around two characters 'Spray and Chill' and their adventures at the Fleadh Cheoil. The comic pays tribute to local culture, history and folklore and is set in and around the Boyne Valley.

"I'm very inspired by reading comics. Ireland has such a rich culture and heritage, so I wanted to tie it into the Fleadh through my illustrations. I wanted to do a comic that is set in Drogheda and that taps into our towns rich history and culture but the folklore element was also very important to me. The Fleadh is such an important and memorable event for Drogheda and I wanted to create something memorable through my comic,' he stated.
