The Corrib was drained this weekend

posted in ireland with 0 comments

For about twenty four hours, between Saturday night and earlier this evening, all of the gates at the fisheries weir were shut and thus the river was drained. Over a quarter of a century in Galway, on and off, and I’ve never chanced to see this. It was extraordinary to see the river almost completely drained, and if I had been brave there were spots where I could’ve crossed sides without getting a foot wet.

Galway geeks :)

Guardians of the Galaxy was brilliant and funny. I organized the group for Mike, who has been ill lately, but he bowed out at the last moment. At that point everyone has made their bookings so it was too late to completely cancel.

Clockwise from bottom left: Mary, Derek, not sure, Katie, not sure, Duncan, Ciaran, Oisin, Alanna, Patrick, Linda, Kieran.
