Edwards Square, right in the heart of town

Greetings friends,

This week’s installment brings us an MTV Cribs inspired post, #mlkinire style. The following shots are of my apartment and surrounding neighborhood to give a better idea of my new digs in Galway City (apt shots were taken last week when I first moved in, I swear):

View of street leading up to my apartment. I live on top of a Dunnes Store, which little did I know is like a home goods / grocery super store combined. Extremely fortunate to have this right outside my front door.

Door to my building on the lower right. I am surrounded by boutique female clothing stores. I can already feel my Irish fashion sense improving.

Around the corner from my place is Shop St, where all the action is.

Construction site outside my building. Not much progress in the last 100 or so years I don’t think. God bless the endearing Irish.

Living room – apartments in Ireland come furnished with basic couches, tables, etc. Makes it much easier moving in from across the world.

Sadly no nap couches suitable for the 6ft+ population.

Kane / Fitz family signs. One of my goals in my time in Ireland is to track down our family history / roots. Thought these pieces would be a good start. Any family reading this that can provide clues as to where I should start please leave a comment below.

Hopefully these pictures give a better idea of where I’ve recently run off to. Stay tuned for more shots as I continue to explore the city and surrounding areas of beautiful IRE.

Until next time.

  1. I absolutely love being able to follow your journey to Ireland. It is so exciting to get live updates of one of my favorite places on Earth! It looks like you have settled in well. Can’t wait for more posts. The pictures are excellent!

  2. Love seeing the pix. Your apt and locale look perfect too. Start with G-Mom’s side and discover the Hurleys in Bandon. Xo, Aunt Shelly

  3. Oh Miles ….. Excellent! wafting smells of bacon rashers, sizzling eggs, crispy potatoes, OR are you ready for Egg Slut in your kitchen? ahha, my new craze, silky smooth mash and coddled egg in a jar! Can’t wait to see you in Ireland. – Big kiss, – Sarifah R.

  4. Love the updates buddy. Not sure if my last post went up. Yes believe it or not I do use the internets. Galway is a hell of town hope you are making the most of it. Gotta go to Kilkenny and kinsale unreal towns. In American new obama and Biden have both stepped down finally realizing they were unfit. The timberwolves are now part of the NCAA and are almost .500. President boehners first order of business was to outlaw indie rockbands that have awful names and wear tight jeans. Needless to say things are on the upswing over here. Hope all is well god bless I love you brother.
