Controversial Galway peace activist Niall Farrell will “surrender himself” to gardaí at the Liam Mellows statue in Eyre Square, at 1.30pm on Friday.

Niall Farrell of the Galway Alliance Against War is to be arrested and sent to Limerick Prison for his involvement in a peace protest on the runway at Shannon Airport with Margaretta D’Arcy last September.

In June they were found guilty of having “interfered with the proper use” of Shannon Airport and given a two week suspended sentence and what approximates to a €100 fine. Both refused to pay the fine or sign a so-called peace bond.

Clarinbridge goes Rustic

In the pretty town of Clarinbridge, a picturesque pub, Sherry's Bar, provides a surprising venue for Rustic Grub. Recently opened in a village already well supplied with good cafes and tea-rooms, it has hit the ground running — which says a lot about chef Maria McNeela and the ethos she has brought with her.

She has found a space to showcase the best that the west has to offer and cooks in the Irish tradition — unrestrained, imaginative, and dedicated to pleasure — maternalism at its finest.
