Last April I posted the news that a 29 year old Kerryman, Billy Burke, was awaiting a lung transplant. He was on a waiting list for over three and a half years.
Unfortunately, he died this morning without having the operation. Tragic as his death is, it’s not as simple as that – he was refused care in a UK hospital that has exclusive access to all donated organs from Ireland, but despite this, a hospital in Manchester took him on.
His website, savebilly.org was updated this morning with the news of his passing.
Mr Burke’s condition deteriorated in recent weeks. He died this morning at the Mater Hospital in Dublin.

Kinda reminds me of some of the photos on quarlo.com!
Thank you Per for pointing me at B.C. today. Terrible attempt at humour though! 🙂
In this CreativeBits tutorial on NeatImage, that package is compared against a Photoshop workflow and the examples are enlightening – Neatimage is worth the money, if you’re using Windows or a Mac.
