    Don't know what this had to do with the yacht race but I spotted it walking through Galway

    This is the main pedestrianised street in Galway appropriately named Shop St.

    This is the city basilica. Haven't got a clue what it;s called. The roof is green cos its made from copper ( I think)

    The next few photos are from the marina. ( Its normally called the "docks" but they've tarted up the name for the festival. The first one is of the race winner
