Rosc Dubh, Irish language comic created and published by Liam de Frinse, Belfast, mid-1970s. Rosc is an archaic Irish word for "eye", used in the modern language to mean a chant, anthem, rhapsody, rhetorical speech, or poetic insight; dubh means "black", but can also mean "satirical"; so while de Frinse intended the title to mean "satirical poetic insight", local Irish speakers nicknamed it "Black Eye". It was published to finance a satirical magazine called Malairt ("alternative") and printed by a local anarchist underground press. 1000 copies were printed and sold.
