Discovering the maritime side of Galway. I felt a very special vibe while sailing on these waters.

Can’t Get Enough

Visiting Katie's Claddagh Cottage was like stepping into Ireland's past. I felt a deep connection with my Irish ancestry here.

Nowhere, Anywhere Like Ireland

Speaking of my Irish heritage, finding these Skerritt graves with my children was an emotional part of this trip. The Skerritt names has been closely associated with Galway for centuries and the Skerritts were one of the 14 Tribes of Galway.

    Loved this! I think in one of the pics, I saw my last name (or part of it). McGauley. How do you turn on the sound? I’m new to this. And thank you Mr. Skerritt for sharing your Irish ancestry; def makes me want to go and look for mine!
