The ‘Green Grass’ in The Claddagh

image preview

This photograph of ‘The Green Grass’, also known as ‘The Big Grass’, in The Claddagh was taken on July 29, 1914. It was taken from roughly where the Claddagh Hall is today. There was a wide expanse of grass off to the left towards where South Park is today. In the early days parts of it were tidal, the tide would come in here in the form of a series of streams. In Peadar O’Dowd’s wonderful book Down By The Claddagh, there is an image of this area with a very large stream in the foreground. These streams were gradually filled in, thus creating the kind of surface we see in the photograph. There were occasional sandy patches visible on the grass.

Did Liverpool scuttle Galway’s Atlantic dream?

image preview

If Eamon Bradshaw and his crew think their courageous plan to extend Galway harbour into deep water to accommodate cruise liners is a step into modernity that will bring commercial success to the city on a grand scale, it pales almost into insignificance compared to the stunning ambitions the Galway merchants schemed in the mid 19th century.

Leafing through Lloyd Cole’s songbook

image preview

It is hard to believe that it is been more than 30 years since Rattlesnakes announced the arrival of the singular pop sensibility of Lloyd Cole. Literate and melodic with airy allusions to the likes of Eve Marie Saint and Simone Du Beauvoir, it was one of the defining albums of its time and sounds just as good today.
