In Joyce's Ulysses, the anti-Semitic headmaster Mr Deasy, claims "Ireland has the honour of being the only country which never persecuted the Jews," an accomplishment he attributes, by a feat of mental gymnastics, to NIMBYism: "Because she never let them in."
Little things can make a big difference in sport and in life and on Sunday Ballaghaderreen are hoping that a few little things can see them get over the line against Ballintubber.
'HOPE TO Love Again' is the new single from Galway singer-songwriter Partland, one that draws on Glen Hansard's raw, intense, emotion, and Adele-like heartbreak.
Our hope was that Mayo would have something to play for in our final group game against Donegal in Castlebar and that the Super 8 experience wouldn’t turn into a nightmare.
SAY SUE Me have been called surf-rock, C86, shoe gaze, and dream-pop. Truth is, they are all of these. You can hear their roots - Yo La Tengo, The Velvet Underground, Pavement, sixties girl groups - but above all they are indie because they embody a very pure expression of what that means as a sound, as a way of making music, as a way of thinking about life.
October 10 marks World Mental Health Day, a day when mental health awareness and the importance of looking after our mental wellbeing is promoted globally and locally.
Walking through Galway city centre with Niall McNelis is something of a stop-start experience, albeit a most cordial nature. He seems to know every second person we pass, and given he has just been elected Mayor of Galway City, a lot of people want to wish him well. “I swear, these are not plants!” he jokes. “It’s not staged!

At this stage of the week I hope the hangover has eased if you joined in the celebrations on Sunday – and Monday – and Tuesday….although I’m sure the sense of euphoria throughout the city and county will last a good while longer, and rightly so.

After all, flags and banners in the county’s colours of maroon and white have fluttered from windows and decked our streets for weeks. Why not include our window boxes, hanging baskets, front gardens and even roundabouts – all areas where the hard working members of our Tidy Towns groups do so much to cheer up and beautify our streets for everyone’s benefit.
What a game we had last Sunday! Breathtaking, vibrant, audacious! Call it whatever you like, it was an outstanding spectacle, and breathtaking from the moment it started until it ended.
I hope you had an opportunity to enjoy the last four or five days of beautiful sunshine. It was amazing and, really, I hope you had more than a few minutes to yourselves to appreciate the welcome spring weather.
