Archive for July, 2013


The temperatures in Galway were in the twenties on Friday as we entered the Big Top for the Imelda May gig. Things got off to a great start when Silhouette came on stage. The powerful voice of Shauna Tohill warmed the crowd up and got us all going with songs such as Can’t keep Up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZeCwOcBH0k.

Mundy revved us all up with Galway Girl and July, very appropriate songs for a warm July evening in Galway. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3V-oXwCWL4http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8J9gftIVR8. More from Mundy can be found at: http://mundy.ie/


The atmosphere was electric by the time Imelda May took centre stage. She really rocked the Big Top with her hits Johnny Got a Boom Boom: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZucJAkzCNq8, and Mayhem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxj5wlXY9No, as well as wowing us with some new songs.  To find out more about Imelda May: http://imeldamay.co.uk/

Looking forward to dining Al Fresco again this evening and some more paddling pool fun.
