In this episode of the Old Galway Diary podcast, Tom Kenny is looking at the history of the Galwegian Rugby Club who are celebrating their centenary this year. Ronnie O’Gorman is looking at the Irish Famine, but not the one we all know about. A separate famine from 1740 which was caused mainly by bad weather.
