People of the Tribes : Meet Senan.

Mon, Apr 16, 2018

''I'm Senan O Connor, raised in Rhode Island, the smallest US state located on the coast a few hours north of New York. Son of a Galwegian father and an American mother. At 18 I began travelling around the states and parts of Europe selling my art as pen and ink postcards on the streets of various cities before settling in New Orleans in 2009. Last June I moved to Galway which held great memories for my parents. I wanted to see what it might be able to offer me and what I might be able to offer it. You can find me on Saturdays at the tiny trader's village, a new market at Aras na nGael on Dominick street''.

Thu, Apr 12, 2018

''I'm James Anthony Kelly, a man of the roads. I grew up in North Kerry but I've been coming to Galway for the past 30 years, I went to university here, Michael D thought me before he became a politician, we are going back a bit now! I travel around the country playing festivals, writing poetry and I'm involved in Irish traditional music, oh I also have a lady friend who lives here so that's a draw too. I am putting the finishing touches on a play and I have been selling my novels for the past 25 years. Galway is great, its' one of the best spots in Ireland really, a fantastic place if you are involved in the arts or if you are a writer. There is a buzz about the city. I can't get enough of it!''

People of The Tribes: Meet Tiago

Tue, Apr 03, 2018

Hi, My name is Tiago and I'm originally from Portugal. I moved over here 6 years ago and have never looked back. Galway is now my home! When you first move to a different country you have a preconceived idea of how hard life will be adapting to a new place but Galway has proved me wrong! This great city with its very accepting & friendly people have made all the challenges I faced over the last 6 years much more enjoyable and rewarding. After working in a few hotels in Galway, I am now managing McGettigans on Eyre Square. The hospitality industry has given me the opportunity to work with people from all walks of life and through this, I have made lifelong friends! Gaillimh Abú!

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.
