Make The Change We are what we eat… By Miguel MAZA

Make The Change We are what we eat… By Miguel MAZA   Yeah, I know… It’s a cliche. But, it’s true.  For most of us who have a slow metabolism, nutrition is very important for any goal we have in our life. If we want to keep ourselves sane, or if we want to live longer.  If we want to build muscle, lose fat or get stronger, nutrition or our diet, is essential. Many scientific research proves that the results we get after training are composed of 70% diet and 30% exercise.   Let’s say we make some replacements; for example, replace white bread for brown or whole grain bread. In […]

Galway Gamer – Feeling Board?

The Galway Gamer- Feeling Board? By Spud Murphy.  In light of the recent International Tabletop Day, an event which saw gamers all over the world getting together at selected venues to play some of their favourite non-video games, it seems like a great time to get involved in Galway’s busy tabletop and board game scene. You see, not all gaming happens through consoles; there is a much older way of playing against or alongside your friends without the use of electronic devices which is equally as popular around the city.   There is a huge amount of different games styles involved in these games, from fun little pick-up-and-play card games like […]

Muintir na Gaillimhe…. a chat with some of Galway’s interesting inhabitants – Gill Carroll An as Gaillimh tú? Cá bhfuil tú i do chónaí anois? Gaillimheach go smior mé. Tógadh sa Daingean mé agus táim ag cónaí anois in aice Loch an tSáile. Cén obair a dhéanann tú?

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 […]

CRAICing Gaeilge by Dara KELLY

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!

Cara’s Good Karma CRAIC by Cara LYONS

Dear Candy, I’m just feckin’ cheesed off to say the least because some little bugger keeps pinching my nuts. He comes in the middle of the night and pinches them. 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 […]
