The business cards in the form of beer mats certainly grabbed the attention of the Irish ex-Pats there in Irish pubs in Toronto last St Patrick’s Day as they featured the beneficent features of none other than friendly Father Jack, together with a passing reference to another popular TV series ‘Better Call Saul’, a spinoff from ‘Breaking Bad’.
According to Donegal Now, Anthony Doherty, originally from Gweedore, works as a Canadian Immigration Consultant for the company and he explained how the idea came about.
“We came up with the beermats to promote our business and who better to grab people’s attention than Father Jack,” he said.
Although the beermats were light-hearted, they were a way of keeping spirits high amongst the many Irish immigrants in Canada who’re struggling with getting permanent residency, he continued,
“The message was to bring light to people’s frustration and difficulty in emigrating to Canada. As a landed immigrant myself, I recognise and completely understand the stress involved when applying to become a Canadian permanent resident.”
The one-of-a-kind beermats were designed by another Donegal man from Genfinn, Shane McGlinchey, reports Donegal Now.
