A man who makes things happen

image preview

In one sense, John Concannon was ahead of his time. If he was starting off now and doing the same thing, he’d be known as a brand influencer using techniques deployed by the best bloggers. Think of the tens of thousands of guests who appeared on the Late Late Show since its inception in 1961, and in the top twenty clips, up there with the Boyzone segment, the Bishop and the Nightie, is John and his multi-bucket for feeding three calves at a time.

'It's always about improving on what you've done'

image preview

THERE ARE few musicians, who, more than two decades into their career, produce a set of songs many regard as among their finest, if not indeed their best, that go on to get a Mercury award nomination, in a year which is also the 20th anniversary of the album with which they originally made their name.

Crime in the Country

image preview

As part of the Galway Advertiser's ongoing series on rural crime, we speak to a farmer in rural Galway, who has been robbed three times, including two nights in a row in July. The man wishes to remain anonymous.

The funny side of the political, the personal, and the social

image preview

GALLANT it was not. Neither was it dashing. Even less was it sophisticated, but in spite of all that, Tiffany Stevenson admits that Galway was where she was treated to "the best chat-up line I've ever heard".

The case for the defence

image preview

After every victory, no more than after every loss in a football game, people look for something to take out of it and work on for the next game. Scoring 6-25 in a provincial final win makes everything appear rosy on the the attacking side. But questions are also asked about the quality of the team you have just beaten. Add in the fact that you also conceded 2-11 to a team you were so far ahead of on the field of play, to go with the 2-8 you shipped against Galway in the Connacht semi-final win, and the attention on Mayo has switched to their potential defensive frailties.

Damien Dempsey - to the waters and the wild

image preview

THE FIRST time most people heard Damien Dempsey was in 1997, when the late Gerry Ryan played the songwriter's debut single 'Dublin Town' almost continuously on 2FM. It was catchy, but there was nothing to indicate this was the opening salvo from a man poised to become one of Ireland's most gifted songwriters.

Holmes happy with improvement shown

image preview

Mayo joint manager Pat Holmes was happy with his sides performance on Sunday in their win over Monaghan, but there's still plenty room of improvement he said: “We created loads of chances, we have a bit of work to do yet and things to improve on, but we were looking for an improvement on our performance the last day, we would have been disappointed with that but we knew that we were better than we showed the last day and in fairness to the boys they came out and played very, very well.”

image preview

Not long after they had overseen a win in their debut contest as the joint managers of the Mayo senior football team, Noel Connelly and Pat Holmes came out of the dressing room to speak to the local press corp in the concrete tunnel under the bowls of the stand in Elverys MacHale Park.

Meet the new bosses - Holmes and Connelly are ready to go

image preview

You don't often hear an inter-county manager saying it was the wrong decision taking on the job, or it was wrong that they were offered the job in the first place. But Pat Holmes did admit last Saturday night that when he was appointed Mayo manager for the first time in 1999 it probably wasn't the right choice by him to take it on or for the county board to offer it to him.
