  • "This is the only imaginative work in this collection, there are many references in the graffiti to various things connected to my experience of Grangegorman. Irish benders and Burners was the group we created which converted old gasbottles into wood-stoves to be sent off to Dunkirk before the winter. Keysha Nera Kitchen was a Bosnian refugee food kitchen set up by a friend of mine who I lived with in a nearby squat. The Dublin Critical Mass poster can be made out to those familiar with it. Gill was a sound Indian shopkeeper up the road. Free Kurdistan, free sandwiches was a nearby piece of graffiti. Gaza was a well known stencil drawing, among others." David Ryan
