Claddagh: a ring, a king and fishermen with boats

If there’s one small Irish community that’s made a name for itself, it’s the Claddagh. Not only does it boast its own ring, but it also has its own king. Nowadays, the area is a sought-after property location in the south of Galway’s city centre. The Claddagh has come a long way since its humble beginnings as a traditional fishing village.

Mary Boyle: still missing but not forgotten

She has been called ‘Ireland’s Madeleine McCann’. A tragic nickname for a little Irish girl who has been missing for nearly forty years. Six-year old Mary Boyle disappeared without a trace from her grandparents’ farm in 1977. Mary’s identical twin sister, Ann Doherty, has teamed up with investigative journalist Gemma O’Doherty to search for the truth behind the tragedy – a truth that may have large implications for the Irish establishment.
