A Christmas Experience in Galway City

Walking Down a Festooned-covered Shop Street

Coordinating (in my capacity as DERI Education Outreach Officer) the distribution of free laptop computers to the children of Scoil Bhríde in the village of Menlo
Photos below show DERI's Lukasz (elf) & Bill Mc Daniel (Santa) being the pupils best friends!
Enjoying the party to celebrate the launch of the Countdown Clock for the 'Volvo Ocean Race' in Galway's newest restaurant Pier 88 (Photo below shows Dr. Noirin Burke and my beautiful wife Cepta). The Round-the-World race will visit Galway in Summer 2009.____________
Acting as Santa's little helper at the Christmas Party for the children of the Eglinton Asylum Seeker's Accommodation Centre

Attending the Adult Asylum Seekers Christmas Party at the Slovakian-owned KRCMA bar in Salthill which I co-launched with local Fianna Fáil TD Frank Fahey____________

Experiencing the joy of Carole Singing by candle light with hundreds of others in the famed & hallowed medieval church of St. Nicholas on Christmas Eve____________
Decorating the home for Christmas
Witnessing the excitement of my young son as he torn open his presents on Christmas morning
Watching in awe the hundreds of swimmers who participated in the Charity Swim on Christmas Day (I am going to participate next year!)

Hello there,

Stuart Clark from Hot Press here here. Was Googling KCRMA and came across your excellent blog – some good stuff on it. Urgently trying to contact the aforementioned Slovak food and drink emporium but can't for the life of me find a number. Could you email it to me at stuartclark@hotpress.ie if you have one?

Many thanks,
