Colourful Gogarty escapes death by a whisker

image preview

A precocious and cleverly witty Trinity student in a yellow waistcoat, Oliver St John Gogarty, was to become a close friend of Sinn Féin's founder Arthur Griffith. At its first historic meeting, November 28 1905, Gogarty proclaimed against the 'tyranny of the British government', in the grand manner of a Cicero addressing the Roman senate.

The Martini Cowboy

When we think of New York City the images that come to mind are of skyscrapers, Central Park coffee houses, Wall Street, cocktails and manolo blahnik shoes. The images of 10 gallon hats, honky tonks and tumbleweeds seem at odds with the Big Apple images but in recent years New York-native Jack Grace has changed all that. The Village Voice declared: “NYC someday will brag about its great legends of country music and among those names will be the engaging, hardworking, witty, and schmoozing and boozing Grace.” The Martini Cowboy brings his Jack Grace Band to Galway’s Roisin Dubh on Tuesday August 26.
