Hi, my name is Carly Zimmerman, and I’m from the U.S. where I made my home in New Orleans. I work as the Volunteer Manager at Galway International Arts Festival, and this will be my third Festival season in Galway.
Hi, my name is Kieran O Malley, I’m from a beautiful part of Mayo called Bonniconlon, located in the foothills of the Ox mountains, close to Ballina. I moved to Galway in 2000 when I came here to study marketing in GMIT and spent seven incredibly happy years in the place, during which time I had the honour of being Student Union President amongst other roles. I currently work as part of the digital marketing team for the Connacht Hospitality team, which includes An Pucan, 1520, Hyde Bar, The Connacht Hotel, The Forster Court Hotel, the Residence Hotel and Active 24 Fitness. Outside work I enjoy soccer and blogging, my blog The Galway Player has helped to develop a greater understanding and appreciation of this amazing city and its people. The business community of Galway have been unbelievably supportive of my blog and I endeavour to return the favour whenever possible through my social media channels. My favourite thing about Galway is definitely the people and my favourite place is the Prom in Salthill where I can be found most free evenings.
Hi, I'm Paul David Murphy and I'm from Ballinrobe, County Mayo but and I live and work in Galway city centre. I've embraced the city with both hands since I moved here in 2009 and I love it. For the last number of years, I've been heavily involved in the Arts and Events scene and I've worked at almost every event and Festival in City. Last September I set up Tiny Traders Village, which is the new Saturday market on Dominick Street and I'm glad to say it's going really well. Aside from running this I also work freelance in the Events industry and in hospitality. I also am a semi-professional stand up comedian and I'm just back from a second UK tour with Internet sensations and fellow Galwegians Farmer Michael and Kathleen. I've been unofficially labelled the "busiest man in Galway" by some due to my involvement in "everything" around the town. I absolutely love Galway and I genuinely think its one of the best places to live in the World. Bring on the summer.
Hi, I'm Cian. I'm a 20-year-old singer-songwriter from Galway city and I've been busking for about three years. My songs are heavily lyrics-based, acoustic indie-folk. I've been studying poetry this year as part of my college course (Arts with Creative Writing) so that's kinda tied in with the songwriting...i.e. I've been able to write songs and call them poems. I'm mainly influenced by Irish singer-songwriters in the same genre - the likes of Damien Rice, Fionn Regan and Dermot Kennedy...anyone that writes nice folk-y, story songs. I'll be busking and gigging around Galway all summer and although I've got a decent body of songs written, I'm picky enough to have not put any of them online yet...I'll be throwing some videos up online in the next few months but I'm not sure exactly when I'll be recording and releasing them properly yet.
''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''.
''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!''
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!
