Christmas cheer at Brigit’s Garden Café

Thu, Dec 06, 2018

Brigit’s Garden offers a magical experience for all ages. The beautiful gardens are set on 4.5 hectares of woodland and wildflower meadows in Roscahill, County Galway. The wildlife gardens are designed to reflect the west of Ireland landscape and are dotted with interesting features — a nature trail, Ogham trees, children's discovery trail, living willow play area, an ancient ring fort, roundhouse, and the largest calendar sundial in Ireland. As winner of a prestigious Georgina Campbell award for Family Friendly Destination of the Year 2017, these family-friendly gardens are themed on the Celtic festivals of Samhain, Imbolc, Bealtaine, and Lughnasa, a journey through the cycle of the year. Additional talks and activities on Celtic heritage are available and there is often music in the gardens on bank holidays and every Sunday in summer.

The layout of your garden should enhance your home.

Taking stock and making plans

Tue, Dec 04, 2018

As the days get shorter and the winter solstice approaches, spending time outside happens less and less. This is the time to take stock of how your garden is working for you, and consider any changes you’d like to make in time for spring. Mind you, it might seem as though you’re working for the garden rather than the other way around, with mowing, trimming and tidying taking more time than you’d like, so if you’d like to change that, it’s worth considering some improvements to your garden layout and planting.

How we stop doing things the stupid way

Thu, Nov 29, 2018

When all is said and done, there is great wisdom to be got from Puss in Boots in Shrek. A master of the art of life, a great survivor, a curator of the nine lives that he was born with, he was often known to impart the words of a creature who had lived life to the full and knew all its twists and turns.

People of the Tribes: Meet Stephen.

Tue, Dec 04, 2018

Hi am Stephen Deady from Renmore but now live in Moycullen. I am currently working in Anthony Ryans on Shop Street. I am also the Treasurer of the Rep of Ireland Soccer Supports Club Western Branch (RISSCW). Trying my best to help supporters to get to see their country play soccer. Galway is home and always will be. You can’t walk down shop street without bumping into someone you know. The nightlife is pure class. Tig Coílí’s is my favourite bar, without it, Galway wouldn’t be the same for me.
