Hi, I'm Fiona Concannon, a professional artist from Spiddal, Co. Galway. I have studied Fine Art Painting in 5 different art colleges - Limerick, Galway, Cork, Belfast and Dublin, and have always been drawn back to my home in Galway, I love everything about Galway - the landscape is stunning, the people are so warm and friendly, there are so many lovely places to eat and drink, you never know who you are going to bump into or what madness is about to take place!! I am proud and lucky to call Galway my home, as an artist, it is giving me endless inspiration and material to work from, it really is a very special place.

People of The Tribes : Meet Kayla

Wed, Nov 22, 2017

Hi, I'm Kayla. I'm a singer originally from Connemara. My grandad was also a singer from the Claddagh. I have spent a few years away studying music and now I travel all over the country as a singer - Although nowhere so far is as nice as the city of the tribes. Well, joining Big Tom in Derry for Opry Dhoire on TG4 does come close enough! We are so blessed to have such friendly people and the best craic! Christmas in Galway is pure magic and it's my favourite time of year to be at home. I love singing at the Christmas market every year and it's a great time for family and friends to get together and enjoy the magical atmosphere the city has to offer. Whether its pints and a sing-song down in Monroes or a stroll through Quay street -There really is no place like home!

People of the Tribes : Meet Margaret and Mary

Thu, Nov 09, 2017

I'm Margaret Gallagher and I currently live I Howth Co. Dublin and I'm Mary Mc Sweeney and I live in Galway. We originate from Bandon in West Cork. We own a business called Les Jumelles which means twins in French. We are twins but born on separate days! Mary was born on the first of December and Margaret was born on the second of December, after midnight, 6 hours apart. Galway is a real buzzing city, it has absolutely everything a person could want, I think the fact that it's so small in comparison to Dublin, ist perfectly compact, you really get to know your customers and the characters that make this city so young, fun and unique.

People of the Tribes: Meet Matt

Tue, Oct 17, 2017

I had always wanted to come to the Galway but decided to do my undergrad in Belfast. When I made up my mind to do a masters, Galway was the only place on which my sights were set. As soon as I arrived, I knew that I was going to enjoy living in Galway. I loved it so much I didn't go home (Co Down) once during my first term. That was nearly four months (my parents were delighted with that). People make places and Galway has such a mix, it is hard for people not fit in due to the fact the people embrace everyone. The nightlife, the pubs, clubs, and grubs are probably the best in the whole country.

People of the Tribes : Meet Alexandra.

Mon, Aug 28, 2017

I'm originally from Poland. I first came to Galway just to save money and go back after 1 year but I fell in love with the city. I'm now living in Galway nearly 11 years now with a beautiful 4-year-old boy. I worked in childcare for years and recently some friends of mine decided to set up a new business in the heart of Eyre Square. They asked me to join the team! A new adventure, it is very exciting and time to try something different. The owners Monika and Dan sent me to Kraków to study natural products which is great because I love everything to do with organic or natural food and cosmetics. Galway to me is a wonderful place. There is something here for everyone. Shop street on a good day or bad day is amazing because of all the music one can hear. Great restaurants and night life too!
