There's a part of Galway that's really neat, with a stone road that's taken over by pedestrians. The street musicians there are numerous enough that you can basically always hear one as you're walking. People watching was quite fun. At 4 pm, we started making a very early ...

Until last year the nuns ran a well-regarded school but they closed it – not enough nuns to continue running it.
