GALWAY GAMER – The Trench by Spud Murphy

The Galway Gamer- Trench by Spud Murphy.   This city has always been known for its perpetual stream of creativity, from musicians and poets to artists and all manner of street performers. Another brand of creative minds can be found in the indie game development scene where a local team, known as Howling Hamster, have excelled with the demo of their upcoming game, Trench.   The game has been created by the three man operation and revolves around the theme of deep sea exploration, where the player takes control of a small submarine and must fight to survive against swarms of aquatic aliens along the ocean’s bed. These enemies range from […]

Máire Treasa Ní Dhubhghail An as Gaillimh tú? Cá bhfuil tú i do chónaí anois? Is ea! Rugadh agus tógadh mé in Indreabhán agus tá mé fós i mo chónaí ann!

It makes me very angry because I love my nuts and I don’t have that many. I tried to remove them from the area but he always finds them. I get such enjoyment from my nuts and the last thing I want is someone pinching them. I grew them all by myself. What should I do about it? Feckin’ squirrels! Candy: hahahahaha! Oh my gawd! I thought you were talking about something completely different and I was starting to get worried when […]

A Head Start for the Galway Races!

What is the first thing that ladies think about when it comes to dressing for the races?….the hat! It is the centrepiece and the determining factor between a good and a winning outfit. A lady who knows all about this is local Tuam milliner Caithriona King.  Caithriona won Milliner of the Year at this year’s Irish Fashion Innovation Awards and specialises in making bespoke pieces. She has the ability to work with a client to find a style to best suit them. I have selected two headpieces from this talented milliner, and her talent can be seen through her workmanship.  The first piece I chose was the ‘Linda’ headpiece in a […]
