CHUTZPAH, RESTLESSNESS, imagination and no little skill across a range of disciplines have all played their part in photographer Reg Gordon’s eventful and varied career path.
He grew up loving outdoor pursuits and the natural world, despite living close to the world’s largest car manufacturing plant. He has lived in Ireland most his life, but his interest in the country was stimulated in part through British Army radio.
THE ART of Joe Boske is synonymous with the great Galway Arts Festival posters of the 1980s as well as with a surreal, off-beat way of looking at the west of Ireland.

More than 100 artworks by some of Ireland’s leading contemporary artists, such as John Behan, Joe Boske, and Maria Van Kampen, will go ‘under the hammer’ for charity this weekend.
I am glad Galway does not have Michelin starred restaurants. I have eaten in two Dublin restaurants when the family occasion, so I was told, warranted a Michelin starred meal. The first occasion was very good. The owner/chef visited all the tables and chatted pleasantly, hoping that we had enjoyed our meal. We all had. On the following two occasions, including another restaurant, which to my disbelief, retained its Michelin star this year, both meals were a disgrace. Incredibly over priced, snobby and condescending waiters, tiny portions, and pretentious food. Apart from the obligatory ‘is everything all right?’ no sincere effort was made to connect with the customer.
