Big up to Jessica Harkin who was last night featured on Nationwide on RTÉ 1. Jessica a native of Donegal has been a huge magic fan ever since having a magician at her seventh birthday party. The magician in question we find out in the VT is Des O Callaghan. Jessica is only 18 yrs old and is quite the serious student. In addition to performing magic she is also well versed in circus skills and a pretty impressive contact juggler.
Your editor here at IMN has chatted some to Jessica and is pleased to report not only is she a keen perfromer but a very sweet young lady to boot. We wish her continued success.
