When OLBC was founded in 1940, the Government provided no out of school education for young people. There was a great need for social and recreational facilities. Such activity was virtually non-existent in the working class areas of Bohermore, Shantalla, The Claddagh, and ‘The West’. The critical core of the club was (and is) its generic youth club which met (and still meets) several evenings a week. The primary aim in those days was to show the boys ways and means of securing their own destiny.

Last week I visited McGinns on the Docks (previously Sheridan’s) to see what the new owners are serving in that lovely room upstairs overlooking the dockside area. The first thing I noticed is that it is now also an exhibition area and currently features some stunning limited edition framed photos by Joe Geoghegan of scenes from the Volvo Ocean Race. They are quite spectacular, well framed and mounted. In fact from any small viewing distance they look like paintings. There is also an exhibition by six local Galway photographers downstairs. I understand this will be a venue for further exhibitions.
Mc Ginn’s, Bar & Restaurant are moving away from what was the small ‘early house’ pub on the Docks in Galway, and are adapting to an ever changing market. Tomorrow (Friday) sees the launch of Mc Ginn’s as a ‘Photo Pub’; a marriage of the traditional pub with photography. The launch on Friday night is entitled ‘Six of the Best’, an exhibition by six Galway-based photographers; Joe Geoghegan, Sean Tomkins, Sean Mc Cormack, Pat O Connor, Conor Ledwith, and John Smyth who have each created six landscape studies for the opening of Mc Ginn’s as the first dedicated Photo Pub in the world !
