Galway Blackrock Swim (Swimming)

In a. Galway,d. People & Animals by admin / November 12, 2012 / 0 Comments

This is Martin Burke, a hardy swimmer at the diving board at Blackrock, Salthill, Galway. He came out of the water and casually said “It’s lovely in there.” The Diving Board at Blackrock, Salthill is a very popular swimming and diving location with locals (and tourists in the summer). I’ve only been in there once and that was with a wetsuit on.

Play It Low Into Joe ( Pearse Stadium Galway GAA )

In a. Galway,h. Sport by admin / March 1, 2012 / 4 Comments

Last summer I wandered into Pairc Ui Caoimh, Cork GAA stadium when it was empty and took photographs of the empty stadium. So I called into Pearse Stadium, Salthill, home to Galway GAA. The stadium manager kindly allowed me to walk around taking photographs . Here’s the first set of photos, more to follow soon.

Not Men But Fír

The changing rooms were surprisingly extremely large, there was even a physio room and warm up room. Compare this to the changing rooms that Cork GAA have-

My second set of photographs from Pearse Stadium can be found here
