People of the Tribes: Meet Paschal.

Wed, Sep 05, 2018

Hello, my name is Paschal, this is Socks (the Horse)... I'm a Galway man through and through, living in Craughwell, Co. Galway. I was in the defence forces for 38 years, involved in the RDF Unit or the FCA Unit and stationed in Loughrea for 15 years. For the past 26 years on and off I have brought my family, friends and the odd wedding couple around on my horse and cart. Then I started bringing tourists and the public around the city, I love doing what I am doing, it gives me great joy! There is such a great buzz in Galway, if you're in bad form and need a lift, just walk down shop street, high street or Quay street, you're sure to meet a smiling, friendly face to snap you out of it. We have some much here in Galway, the lakes, the Sea, the people and the laughter!

People of the Tribes: Meet Kaisa

Wed, Aug 29, 2018

I’m Kaisa Holsting, a fearless 32-year-old blue haired multipotentialite who dabbles in a variety of different creative fields such as graphic design, jewellery design, rock’n’rollin’ on stage, modelling on catwalks and magazine spreads and painting and playing with yarn when there’s still some free time left. I actually don't even like that question, because it's almost impossible for me to sum myself up in just a few words.

People of the Tribes: Meet Morgan.

Wed, Aug 15, 2018

Hi, I'm Morgan O Callaghan. I am a born and bred Galwegian, a happy one at that. I'm a transport enthusiast and I've been interested in the Bus and coach industry for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was a young boy I can always remember being fascinated by the bus and coach industry. My obsession as some people would call it, lead to me knowing every driver working for a bus company in Galway. It's only in the last few years I've realised where my passion and love for this industry was taking me. I always wanted to be physically involved in the ''ins and the outs'' of this industry which didn't go down well with ex-girlfriends, who thought I was a freak!

People of the Tribes: Meet Monica.

Tue, Jul 24, 2018

I have great memories of the GIAF since I was born in Prospect Hill and could walk to all the events. One of the highlights for me was the Macnas parade, and also for my children. I have volunteered for many organisations over the years, Enable Ireland, GRCC, Galway Hospice, and Galway Simon. I work in the James Hardiman library in Nuig, and because I only work the semesters, I am privileged to have the time to volunteer.
