Thank you to everyone who has backed my latest Kickstarter: Tish Murtha's Youth Unemployment. The campaign has been a great success and quickly reached its target. There is still time to back it (these are the final few days). (Tish sadly died of a brain aneurysm in 2013 but her daughter Ella is collaborating with Bluecoat Press to celebrate her mother's great talent with this book about the horrendous youth unemployment that ravaged Britain during the Thatcher years).

The offer I made at the start of the campaign still stands: any backer of Being Irish will also receive a photograph of the main project image if they commit to the £45 reward (signed book by Ella plus name in the acknowledgements).

Please have a look: goo.gl/s8UuDy

Best wishes,

Colin
