Commentary From The Cedar Lounge Revolution

30th March 2015

As NollaigO noted here:

Focalín (“A wee word” for the odd reader of CLR who does not understand the First Language) was an Irish political satirical magazine produced in London in the late 1970s /early 1980s. The founders of the magazine were former supporters of the early Peoples Democracy and included an outstanding cartoonist.

As with the other issue this contains cartoons, a cartoon strip, newspaper cuttings and so on. It’s certainly pitched as an in joke but there are many references to broader issues in the news.

    I think you need to appreciate the times,roddy!
    One of the above named conspirators was probably the source of the leak to Focalín!
