Huge thanks to everyone who made our first ever cartoon auction a big success last night, especially sponsors the Liquor Lounge (upstairs at the Dáil Bar) and the Latin Quarter, and of course all the cartoonists. In particular we want to thank Tom Mathews and Gerard Crowley who donated original works to the cause.
Special thanks too to Brendan Savage who did a simply brilliant job as MC, and of course to everyone who came – especially those of you who bought cartoons.
If you weren’t there… Well, you should have been. We sold 30 pieces (23 prints and 7 original drawings), mostly at bargain prices.
It was a huge boost for us, raising enough to make some of our ideas feasible, so look out for news about the 2019 festival soon!
