Galway is a coastal city in the west of Ireland. It’s almost 900 years old. The geology of the area can be seen through the pavement. Cobble roads, granite sets and rough tarmacadam. There’s marble in the Connemara Mountains, but we weren’t blessed with any marble plazas or ledges.

Considering the conditions, you’ll forgive us for consistently committing one of skating’s cardinal sins -we tend to stick to our handful of palatable spots.

One of Galway’s dearest sons, John Finucane, visited us from Korea recently and we set out to take some photos around the place, away from our usual haunts. You should always remember that street skating is about exploring the city. It’s too easy to forget there are diamonds in the rough.
