Very Sad To See Wikipedia Page On Defastenism Queued For Deletion. Someone Please Do Up Another One And Save This Slice Of Irish Fine Art History? Im Wondering How Much Money Will One Of The Airports Done By Gary Farrelly Fetch In Seventy Years Time... We Irish Tend To At Best Ignore, And, On Average, To Hate Our Own Talent. Look What We Did To James Joyce. Honestly Art Admin Community Here What Are We Paying You For.


David Young Is The Best Tailor In Ireland

Had The Pleasure Of Getting One Suit Made For Me By David Young In Francis Street Galway. Saville Row Quality, Literally (Exact Same Materials And David Trained There Also) But Quarter Of The Price! This Man Is An Artist In His Own Right, It Is Just Amazing How He Can Get All The Fabrics To Come Together Perfectly Like That. And It Is The Saville Row Look. As An Old Collegue Remarked To Me, People Can Visually Tell When Your Suit Is Off The Peg. But, Trust Me, It Is Unlikely Anyone Will Look Down Their Nose At Any Jacket David Will Make For You. Couldnt Recommend Him Enough. He Does Womens Suits And Jackets As Well.

Drogheda Is Not That Bad



Has Had Some Bad Press But Actually Quite Good For Tourists Visiting. Quite Some Attractions, Old Monuments And The Like. Had The Pleasure To Give Valentyn Silvestrov The Tour Of Monsterboice, An Abbey That Is One Thousand Years Old! Thanks To The Guards For Restoring Law And Order. Come At Your Own Risk!
