All About Galway!
By Grace Hand, 2nd Class
My project is all about County Galway. It is located on the west coast of Ireland, with a population of over 80,000 people.
Galway is known as Ireland's Cultural Heart and is known for its vibrant lifestyle and lots of festivals and celebrations.  Every November, Galway hosts the Tulca Festival of Visual Arts as well as numerous festivals.
Galway City has a reputation for the Irish language, music, song and dancing traditions.
Every summer I go to Salthill with my family. We go swimming in the Atlantic ocean, and we get ice cream after!
The River Corrib flows through Galway Bay and can carry a person at up to 3 meters per second, making it the second fastest in all of Europe!
Fun Fact!
Galway is home to Ireland's longest place name. Muckanaghederdauhaulia translates to ‘piggery between two briny places’ and is in Connemara.
