RIP Barbara Nolan

Barbara Nolan

Sad news to bring you – Barbara Nolan died yesterday. Barbara, who lived in Allihies, West Cork, had been a cartoonist and illustrator since the 80s, working in newspapers, magazines, educational books and advertising. Back in 1986 she drew a weekly strip, Moya, for a newspaper I have yet to identify, from 1993 she drew “Me and Me Gran” for The Den magazine, and in 2004 she wrote and illustrated a children’s book, Who is my Angel. She also painted – here’s a selection. Condolences from ICN and its readers to her sons Oscar and Ruarai, brothers Bill and Clifford and sister Deirdre.
