One Show and Olympic Burner Flames
In 2013 we designed and developed an Emigrant Flame and Torches to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of John Kennedy coming to the Kennedy home town of New Ross in Co Wexford, Ireland. The flame also celebrates and remembers the millions of Irish people that have emgrated over the two centuries.
