MOYROSS artist Nathan Keane has enjoyed an audience with Arts Minister Jimmy Deenihan, who was impressed with the leaving certificate student’s work.

When Mr Deenihan visited students at Céim ar Chéim, he singled out Mr Keane for praise. Nathan designed a slogan - Blast Music Not Guns - and this left an impression on Mr Deenihan.

It led to him making a presentation of his work to him at his offices in Dublin City Centre.

A talented visual artist, Nathan says he has been a hip-hop activist since the age of ten.
