Well after a GREAT weekend for Galway hurling and two days of partying the town is a little quieter today. People were still savouring the victories of both the Junior and Senior teams late on Monday night.A

Hurling is possibly the best spectator sport I have ever come across. I love cricket and enjoy Rugby Union but Hurling is a class apart. So fast and so skillful and not many prisoners taken, respect for the referee and a shake of hands whoever wins at the end of the match.

Tonight it will be back to the music (after watching Ireland play in the World Cup qualifiers) with some fantastic musicians. I anticipate there will be at least one melodeon, one banjo and three guitars plus whoever walks through the door.

And copious amounts of excellent Guinness of course in a superb bar.
