In this episode of the Old Galway Diary, Tom Kenny takes a look at the Corrib Rowing and Yachting Club founded in 1864 and Ronnie O’Gorman explores the civil war period in Galway on the 100 year anniversary of the execution of four Galway men at Athlone Barracks.
The Old Galway Diary podcast is available every week on the Advertiser Podcasts, Spotify, Apple and Google Podcast.
This podcast is brought to you by Galway City Museum in collaboration with The Galway Advertiser and features two of Galway’s finest writers and storytellers, Ronnie O’Gorman and Tom Kenny. Elaborating on topics they have covered in the paper in the Galway Diary and Old Galway section, and many other aspects of Galway life and history, they bring their inimitable style to allow you relax, listen and enjoy.
