Well, what a wonderful few days of intense May summer weather we have had!
Bank holiday weekends are always busy on Ireland's roads because people want to go home or get away, and it is also a very busy weekend in sport with all GAA fans travelling to Dublin. As always, members of An Garda Síochána will be out in force as they do their very best to keep our roads as safe as possible but this year they have an extra helper getting the road safety message out there.
The stark reality is that to date this year, 156 people have been killed on Irish roads, thirty more than the same period last year. 166 people lost their lives on Irish roads in 2015. 23 persons have been killed on Western roads to date in 2016 and nine of those have been in Galway, four in Mayo, two in Clare and eight in Roscommon.
With two beer gardens, tons of live music and sport, a wide selection of globally renowned whiskeys and a pint of Guinness to beat all others, The Snug Bar is the ideal place to unwind this coming bank holiday weekend.
