Bernadett Sarosi dreams of working for Marvel — the American publisher that counts Spider-Man and X-Men among its many comic book characters. And, having secured her first comic book deal with Irish comic book writer Darrin O’Toole this year, Mary O’Brien says this is not simply a pipe dream for the young comic book artist, who creates most of her art at her home in Courtmacsherry.

A native of Hungary, Bernadett, age 24, is an artist in residence at Clonakilty Community Art Centre (CCAC), where an exhibition of her most recent work is currently running until July 16.

Putting pen to paper before she could even walk, Bernadett now creates her artwork digitally, working from muscle memory and practicing new techniques on her tablet all the time. Comic book art and Punk are her most prominent styles allowing her imagination free rein.

“Whatever comes out, comes out,” she explains.

“I felt like an outcast when I was younger,” says Bernadett “which is why I loved reading comic books like X-Men. I could identify with the characters, all outcasts but free spirits working together as a team.

Bernadett has hundreds of comic books in her collection, which started with her dad buying her a couple every month when she was a child.

Bernadett has also exhibited her work at the Institute Paul Hankar in Brussels.

Bernadett is a great example of an artist dedicated to her art form: passionate, focused, diligent, knowledgeable and talented. I’m sure we will see a lot more of her marvellous artwork in the future,” says CCAC chairperson Clodagh Connaughton,

“If you’re interested in art,” says Bernadett “all you need is time and it will boil away out.”

Submarines, American Sailors, and the Underwater War in Irish Waters, 1917-1918
by Dr John Borgonovo in The Parish Centre, Clonakilty
on Thursday Oct 26 2017 at 8.30 pm

In 1917, unrestricted submarine warfare by German U-boats brought the United States into WWI and created a crisis in Britain. To defeat the submarine menace, an American naval fleet was dispatched to County Cork, bringing about 10,000 sailors with it. This talk will explain the circumstances of this extraordinary event, and how Cork residents dealt with their unexpected American guests.

Dr John Borgonovo is a lecturer in the School of History at UCC. His publications include Spies, Informers, and the 'Anti-Sinn Féin' Society: The Intelligence War in Cork City, 1920-1921; The Dynamics of War and Revolution: Cork City, 1916-1918; Exercising a close vigilance over their daughters: Cork women, American sailors, and Catholic vigilantes, 1917-18; Something in the Nature of a Massacre: The Bandon Valley Killings Revisited (with Andy Bielenberg). His latest publication (with co-authors John Crowley, Donal Ó Drisceoil and Mike Murphy) is the highly acclaimed and magnificient Atlas of the Irish Revolution. In July of this year, he organised a very successful conference on Winning the Western Approaches - Unrestricted Submarine Warfare and the US Navy in Ireland 1917-1918.

Volunteers will be at hand to assist in the procedure. Bring along your apples washed; clean containers to freeze your juice (milk/juice bottles or cartons, plastic bottles with caps); clean, sterilised glass bottles to pasteurise with swing caps or suitable for 26 mm diameter metal cap.

A limited number of new 3 litres juice bags that are suitable for freezing and pasteurising, can be purchased for a nominal fee on the day also.

This is a free community event and donations will be welcome to cover costs.
