Furnishing the Outdoor Room

Mon, Jun 18, 2018

As the evenings lengthen towards the summer solstice I hope you have been able to enjoy some time outside in the garden. This is the time of year when your garden furniture comes into its own so if yours is tired or past its best it might be time to think about investing in some new pieces. As a firm believer in the benefits of sitting down and enjoying the garden as much as possible, I look upon outdoor furniture as one of the most valuable investments in your garden, and it’s often overlooked in favour of hard landscaping and plants when planning your space. This is why I always include advice on the best furniture as an integral part of a garden design.

What will we do now on April Fool’s Day if the Arabs buy United?

Thu, Jun 14, 2018

One of the hoary auld reliables of the newspaper game is when your publication date coincides with April Fools Day. It is the one day of the year when the normal stuff that passes for local news is embellished into extraordinary auld stuff designed to catch the eye, but to be not too good to actually convince people that it is true. I remember about a decade ago, on one April 2, fielding calls from some concerned parishioners of the Cathedral who were shocked to hear our story of the previous day that a Monsignor Faproilio from The Vatican was introducing ATM-style confessionals in the Cathedral, from which you would receive your penance on a small receipt.

People of the Tribes: Meet Cian.

Thu, Jun 07, 2018

Hi, my name is Cian Waters. I'm from Craughwell Co. Galway. I like hanging out with my friends and playing soccer on the local astroturf. I really love Galway, it's a nice place to live, very safe, the people are extremely nice. It's also a very cheap place to live compared to Dublin which is a bonus. I'm here on the N59 selling Strawberries and planning on going to Formentera, Spain later in the summer.
