Print edition cover

I  have always loved going for a dip in the Irish Sea. Recently, I’ve been throwing myself in during the colder months.

I feel it’s one feature of Dublin life that many have done before me and will continue to do in the future. It’s one part of living here that hasn’t changed when so much else around us has.

With this cover, I wanted to pick out a few heads I see braving the icy water on a daily basis. Hopefully, I’ll become one of them.

I’m a Dublin-based political cartoonist and illustrator from Co. Wicklow. You can follow me on Twitter @HBToons.
