Ministerectomy


Click on any image for larger version

This month's cover on Phoenix reminded me of a previous occasion when a minister for health was cartooned as a patient at the mercy of the medical profession.

Today it is James Reilly. Then it was Barry Desmond and he was being lampooned by another minister, Ruairí Quinn, then Minister for Enterprise and Employment, or whatever it was being called at the time.

I have done a cartoon of Ruairí doing the cartoon of Barry and set it in the Place du Tertre in Paris, below.


The actual cartoon itself that Ruairí did in 1986 is below, and if you want to see some more cartoons of the current cabinet go here.
