How to defeat the Alt.Right

image preview

Hopefully it will not happen, but Insider thinks that, given the current state of play – and the direction of the political wind – some variant of fascism is likely to emerge triumphant, not today or tomorrow, but medium term, from the political turmoil consuming Europe and the USA since at least 2014.

People of the Tribes: Meet Jody.

image preview

Hi, I'm Jody Mullakey. I'm originally from Sligo town, but I've been living here for the last 23 years. I paint, write poetry and I also sing. I'm obsessed lately with the law of attraction and the power of visualisation, that you can actually attract what you see in your mind and feel in your heart, and vibrate it to yourself. I'm Aspergic, people call it autistic but it's not, it's more of heightened awareness of things, a heightened way of seeing and feeling reality. It makes me a bit odd, but it connects me deeper to my chi. I love Galway, I truly love the carefree attitude of the people and the fun that they have. I like the energy, it's uplifting and humorous. Don't be shy the next time you see me performing!!

Three coats of blue gloss and an understanding

image preview

I always loved this time of year as a child. All winter long, the three lake boats which we had on Lough Mask would lie as part of the winter furniture — a plaything for my childhood. October to February was their hibernation, a chance for them to drip dry over the dark months, to enjoy life on land. A chance for the floorboards, probably sodden in water all summer, to dry in the shed, alongside the oars. To have a timbered chat with each other about the adventures that they'd had all year, the rocks they'd have run aground, the stories they'd have heard, the secrets shared between anglers and gillies, the dying fish which breathed last on the thin ribs beneath the floorboards.

People of the Tribes: Meet Ben.

image preview

Hi, my name is Ben Reid. I am an uilleann piper and a travelling musician. Originally I'm from Canada, but since attending the University of Limerick six years ago, I've been travelling and playing trad music on the streets and in the pubs in France, Ireland, Australia, the US, and Canada. This year I decided to finally settle in Galway. I love the vibrant music scene here as well as the incredibly warm and welcoming people I've met while busking. I truly feel at home in this city and I'm grateful it has adopted me as well!
