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

People of the Tribes: Meet Teddy

Tue, Feb 26, 2019

I first came to Galway when I was five years old. I was visiting in the dead of winter on holiday from America. I was shocked immediately by the lack of snow and how green everything still was. Unfortunately, I don’t remember too much because I was five but I remember being enchanted by the lush green environment and the very visible history still present.
