2 University Park.

O’Donnellan & Joyce are bringing more than 70 properties for sale in its ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ All Day Summer Auction, which will be held on Friday week, July 21, including a range of residences in the Newcastle area of Galway City.

The auction will begin at noon sharp for the early session, and 3pm for the afternoon session.  Registration is open from 11am for the morning session and 2pm for the afternoon session, and both events will be held in the Harbour Hotel on New Dock Road.

The first property available in Newcastle is at 17 Newcastle Park, a 4-bed semi-detached home which offers a playroom with an ensuite that can be easily changed to a fifth bedroom.

As well as the downstairs playroom, there are two living rooms, a spacious kitchen/dining room, and under stairs storage. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, the main bathroom, and access to a sizeable attic, which has potential for conversion.

There is a mature rear garden of 20 metres depth to the rear of the property, and a large, paved driveway to the front, allowing access for four cars comfortably. The AMV is €425,000, and there are open viewings on Wednesday and Saturday from 2pm to 3pm.

The second Newcastle property is to the rear of 17 Newcastle Park, and is a two-bedroom ‘granny flat’ which also features a living room, kitchen, and bathroom. 17 A Newcastle Park has a partially floor attic for storage, a phone line installed and a wired alarm and all furniture and curtains are included in the sale.

It has a separate, private front garden and a sizeable rear yard, and the AMV is €100,000, with open viewings also available on Wednesday and Saturday from 2pm to 3pm. The two properties are for sale in separate lots, but there is an option to purchase them in a combined lot.

The third Newcastle property is 2 University Park, a 5-bed semi-detached property located across the road from UHG, only 5 minutes from NUIG and within walking distance of the city centre and all amenities.

The property is presented in very good condition and enjoys off street parking to the front and a good-sized garden with shed to the rear. University Park is a cul-de-sac made up of a small number of large semi-detached houses that are mainly owner occupied.

This property is being offered fully furnished, and the AMV is €390,000, with open viewings on Wednesday and Saturday from 2pm to 3pm.

The fourth property is a four-bedroom detached house in Fairlands Park. 22 Sylvan Avenue is in the region of 130sqm, and while in need of modernisation, it is presented in good condition overlooking the large green area.

There is off-street parking at the front and a garden of approximately 20 metres in depth. The house is in close proximity to NUI Galway and UHG, and has an AMV of €340,000. There are open viewings on Wednesday and Saturday from 12.30pm to 1.30pm.

Bemoaning loss of innocence in a sport driven by big bucks

Brazil dazzled the world of football in 1970 with their mix of pace, grace and sheer footballing class.

Country Living with Francis Farragher

I’m not big into trying to resolve the huge issues of the world like wars, climate change or attempting to dethrone the obnoxious Elon Musks of this world, primarily on the basis that my influence would be akin to a moth trying to stop a herd of charging elephants.

And, I suppose at this stage, I have to accept that it’s far too late to try and call a halt to the World Cup proceedings in Qatar but for the life of me, the event doesn’t even send a sliver of enthusiasm through my nervous system.

Maybe, it’s an old-fashioned streak that’s there inside of me, but the thought of watching World Cup matches in the run-up to Christmas just doesn’t seem right. Okay, so it will be about 30°C in the heart of the Qatar desert but watching a World Cup semi-final in the middle of the Christmas office party is just a stretch too far for me.

Alas, World Cup memories go back a long way with me to a late Sunday in July 1966 when as a ‘small boy’ I was given the job of ‘minding’ the house while the ‘rest of them’ saved a small field of hay a couple of miles away from the house.

Of course, at the time there wasn’t even a faint chance of a black-and-white TV in the house, while visits to any abode that might have a telly, were strictly confined to a Sunday with the stipulation that Galway footballers had to be involved.

Tractor run will remember a local legend

Published

Some members of the 10-person organising committee for the PJ Mahoney Memorial Tractor Run that takes place in Ardrahan on Sunday, December 11. (Left to right): Anthony Whelan, Brian Kilkelly, Declan Sylver, Patrick Mahoney and Aonghusa Fahy. Absent from the photo are: Mary Forde, Lena Taylor, Conor O’Dea, Gerald Harney and Mícheál Kelly.

THE PJ Mahoney Memorial Tractor Run will take place on Sunday, December 11, in memory of a very well-known and highly regarded figure within the Ardrahan and South Galway local community, who passed away just a year ago this month.

PJ Mahoney was steeped in farming and the GAA and for this he was known far and wide. He was a talisman for Ardrahan GAA, playing in goals for the senior hurling team when they won county hurling titles in 1974, 1975 and 1978.

All down through the years, he was a most dedicated and guiding servant to the club up until his untimely death in a road accident last year.

PJ farmed locally throughout his life and was well known as an agricultural contractor in both Galway and North Clare, a business carried on by his son Patrick.

There are many tales and anecdotes of PJ Mahoney that still bring a smile to the faces of those recalling them.

He was a keystone in the local community, the neighbour you could always call on, and indeed the neighbour that didn’t need to be called upon as he would turn up to help regardless.
