Galway Triathlon Club's Kevin Thornton was triumphant in the longest race at Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon, in Gort on Sunday.
William of Orange had a major impact on the history of this city, so I presume it was after him that three streets in Galway were named, Williamsgate Street, William Street, and the one in our photograph, William Street West.
Last Friday saw the opening of Martin Divilly Butchers in Terryland Shopping Centre, 87 years on from the very first Martin Divilly Butchers in Galway city. Martin and Audrey along with their extended families cheered on, as Martin’s daughter Shauna Divilly cut the ribbon.
Monday night saw TV3 bring the successful TV show The Apprentice to the streets of Galway. Sponsored by Bank of Ireland, the candidates had to choose two local businesses to sell and promote their local produce. Team Zest went with the two businesses they felt would produce the most sales on the day - Martin Divilly’s butchers of Westside and Goya’s café and bakery of Kirwan’s Lane.
Today sees the launch of the new Martin Divilly's Barbeque Range - their biggest yet! They have everything you need for the summer barbeque, from their succulent Aberdeen Angus Burgers to their homemade pork and chive sausages.
I called into Martin Divilly's butcher's shop in Westside and picked out some treats from their quite amazing selection. They have practically every meat type available that you can think of, and of course much of their focus is on providing meat that is prepped and ready for the oven. I sampled some of the stir fries selection and can recommend the Hong Kong stir fry made with round steak, the Piri Piri stir fry made with pork, and the Mexican stir fry made with chicken. Perhaps the handiest way to cook them is to just pop it in the oven for 15/20 minutes and serve.
Number 34 Shop Street is the shop to visit this week. Whether you are a woman or man, looking for something casual or dressy, you will not beat the fantastic value at the Galway Hat Shop sale shop. Proprietor of the Galway Hat shop, Sandra Divilly, is opening a special sale shop for one week only. Sandra will be the third generation of the Divilly family to trade from Number 34 Shop Street. Both her grandfather Martin Divilly and her father Brian Divilly ran Divilly's Butchers from the premises. Suzanne's Boutique, run by Sandra's mother, was the first ladies’ fashion store on the premises followed by Sasha boutique.
“Christmas dinner is the most important dinner of the year,” says Ray Colleran, third generation butcher in the city’s Mainguard Street. “And this year it’s more important than ever.” I was challenging Ray on the price of turkeys. One international supermarket chain is selling frozen geese for €25, how can they do that?

Barry’s tea still has that kick-awake taste in the morning when you take the first gulp; but tea in general has changed, and changed dramatically. Just look at the choice of teas next time you reach for a packet. Where once there was only Lyons, Barry’s and PG Tips, now there has to be a choice of at least 50 different blends including herbal, organic, loose or bagged, or the plain ordinary black. And I was surprised to learn that there are at lest two tea blenders in Galway; including Solaris Botanicals, which not only won last month’s Junior Chamber of Ireland Entrepreneur of the Year, but in the same week clinched a deal to supply Harrods of London.
