From the Royal Irish Academy e mail - This might be of interest - It'll take some thinking to choose my vote. Behan, McGahern, Patrick McCabe, a wealth of poets etc...

Do you have to be Irish to vote?

Oscurito

I don't like having to choose between literature and visual art.

Separate categories, please.....

But...if you were to put me up against a wall and point a gun at me, I'd go for Brian Fay's work: "Vermeer Woman in Blue Reading a Letter 1662-65".

The gun would get my number two.

The one that had the most immediate effect on me would be Kavanagh's "The Great Hunger".

I really like how the artist has captured the thoughtful contemplation and yet resisted the temptation to glorify.

Traditionally we send the talented ones like you to Paris. Then celebrate you when you're dead.
You could send me to Leitrim and celebrate me now.

No recognition of my creativity? Irish begrudgery at its finest! :)
I have long been a fan of your work....but lately, I notice it's ever so slightly goat-centric.

Maybe if you threw in the odd llama?....or even a regular llama.

You would be among foreigners and living in poverty. So that would help you realize your masterpiece with mashed turnip.

However, you would need to commit suicide and have a gay affair....not in that order obviously.

I'll have to get back to you after consulting with the Revenue Commissioners. It is they after all who decide these things in Ireland.

Will you be retaining a home in the Republic of Ireland too? That will complicate things.

Ok. I'm back. The Revenue say that indeed Leitrim does qualify. Some sh1te about FF and the 1980's. I won't bore you.

You will need to do the following in this order....

Mashed Turnip œuvre.

Gay affair

Learn Irish

Die

There are caveats, but once you've got Artist status at the Revenue you're good to go.
