We know that hurling was played in the Bohermore area 200 years ago. Several different clubs operated around there at different times — Galway City, Bohermore 98s, College Road, Thomas Ashe, etc. Players would occasionally transfer from one club to another so it was natural for them to join the new club that was formed on February 11, 1933. The club was called Liam Mellows after the patriot who led the 1916 rebellion in Galway.
The death has taken place of Mr James Lydon, popularly known as Jimmy, who in his day was director/owner of LydonHouse, and owner of numerous pubs and restaurants locally, including Tea Time Express, Dublin. He employed more than 360 people. He was a passionate promoter of Galway, and a charming, erudite, man who was always willing to offer practical advice to people starting in business. President Michael D Higgins was in attendance at his funeral on Saturday.
