An extraordinary row on the Late Late Show, 17 years ago, had a positive impact on a small Galway business struggling for survival. ‘A very attractive lady,’ Siubhan Maloney, called into Kenny’s Book Bindery, located in Salthill at the time, and told Gerry Kenny that she was a contestant in the Late Late’s Antique Show. She was re-upholstering an old chair, which included a small shelf. She wanted to see how to re-cover an old book in highly decorated leather, which would sit into the shelf. Jerry was happy to show her how it was done. First of all the pages are handsewn together, then clamped and trimmed ready for gold foil, which is applied with heat. This prevents the pages becoming dusty.
Mr John O’Dwyer, Coroner for south Mayo, recorded a verdict of accidental death this week in the tragic case of a Romanian man who died last weekend after a wave capsized a fishing boat he was in. Mircea Ungar, (53), a married man from Sibiu, Romania, was in Ireland for a fishing trip with five friends and was staying in Tourmakeady. The inquest heard that the deceased died due to drowning after water got into his lungs through a tracheotomy tube in his throat.
