Irish Artists in serious trouble.

Artists who were once the toast of the boomtime developers are now on the breadline, according to Arts Minister Jimmy Deenihan.

He told the Sunday Independent that he had been personally contacted by members of the art world who have signed on the dole as their work dried up.

"Some really good artists, some of our top painters at the moment, are finding it very hard to sell their product.

 A Portrait helped, Years and years to complete Ulysses The greatest daytime novel of all time. Teaching English as a foreign language
In Trieste and Zurich. Patronized by a woman of Faith Though I had none, Harriet Weaver. Sylvia Beach’s Shakespeare in Paris My office And Nora my model, inseparable; Hemingway carried me over his shoulder Drunk, we sang, argued, danced, Played the piano and guitar.  




 Dublin, my town, 1904 my year And 16th June my day; But all wanted to know, in their
Ignorance if they featured, And did they what. They suffered for their lack of faith
In James Jaysas Joyce Because I’m genius because …
