The trauma of the onlooker

Thu, Mar 14, 2019

We are all suffering from it, yet we may not notice. There is a fatigue around that is engaging us; that is holding us in its grasp. A sort of voyeuristic urge to look on aghast at what is happening in the two countries which perhaps have influenced us the most over the past few centuries. This morning, we wake up to more news of Brexit, as we slide inexorably towards that date at the end of the month.

People of the Tribes

People of the Tribes: Meet Helen.

Tue, Mar 19, 2019

Hi Helen, here from the Banner County. My Grandfather came from Patch, Glenmaddy so I have a big connection with Galway. This year I’m celebrating 10 years in this friendly and most charming City waxing the men and women of the West in my Salon ‘Elure Beauty’ on the Docks. Having graduated from RTC Galway as a Chef I worked in Kirwans Lane Restaurant which I thoroughly enjoyed. This really spurred on my love for gastronomy for which Galway is now famed for and makes living in the city a delight. After spending a few years travelling I changed my career to Beauty Therapy. Having qualified in Beauty Therapy I returned to Australia to specialise in waxing. To my delight I came second in Image Magazine ‘Best Hair Removal’ category soon after opening in Galway. I fell in love with the buskers, friendliness, food and craic of Galway City. I love every day here especially the stories and laughs I share with my clients. Being on the Wild Atlantic Way just tops off this unique City. No greater place on Earth. I am so proud of my Galway heritage and being associated with the City of the Tribes. Gallimh Abu

The Elephant in the (Garden) Room

Tue, Mar 19, 2019

When designing planted areas for my clients I’m always thinking ahead and planning for colour in the garden for as many months of the year as possible. Colour in summer is easy, but I firmly believe that a garden is for life, not just for summer, and it should look (and be) interesting in Spring, Autumn and Winter too. In fact these are the times when a garden should work its hardest, as you’re less likely to be spending time in it and more likely to be looking out at it from indoors.
