Horgan in the history books

Published

on

DARYL HORGAN

DARYL Horgan became the first Galwegian to score a senior men’s international goal when grabbing the fourth goal for the Republic of Ireland in their 4-1 friendly win over Andorra last Thursday.

Horgan, introduced as a 66th minute substitute for Ronan Curtis, got on the end of Jason Knight’s 89th minute cross to stoop low and send a diving header into the back of the net to cap a brilliant 26-minute cameo for the winger in what was his 13th senior international appearance.

The Knocknacarra native had just five minutes earlier sent in the cross from which Knight made it 3-1 to sighs of relief in the Irish camp – they had fallen 1-0 behind after 52 minutes, before a brace of goals from Troy Parrott in the 58th and 61st minutes put the Boys in Green in front and spared Stephen Kenny’s side the embarrassment of losing to a ski resort.

Horgan is one of seven Galwegians to win a senior men’s international cap – David Forde (24 caps), Alan Lee (10), Aaron Connolly (6), Greg Cunningham (4), Ryan Manning (4), and the late Eamonn ‘Chick’ Deacy (4) are the others – but he is the first to find the back of the opposition net.

He was joined from the bench last Thursday by Manning, and both players also started on the bench in Budapest on Tuesday night in the scoreless draw with Hungary, with both again being introduced in the second-half, Horgan in the 56th minute to win his 14th cap, followed by Manning in the 85th minute to win his fourth cap.

Fun and laughter promised in Harry Potter parody show

Published

on

Potted Potter is visiting Galway as part of an Irish tour.

The Olivier Award nominated Potted Potter, The Unauthorised Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff, visits Galway’s Town Hall Theatre from this Thursday to Sunday, August 18-21. Having played to sold-out houses all over the world, it’s visiting Galway as part of an Irish tour.

The show takes on the challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real-life game of Quidditch) into 70 hilarious minutes.

Performed by Jan Martin and Paul Brown, Potted Potter contains all the central characters, a special appearance from a fire-breathing dragon, endless costumes, brilliant songs, ridiculous props and a generous helping of Hogwarts magic.

Created by double-Olivier Award Best Entertainment nominees Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, Potted Potter has been seen by over a million muggles around the world since its 2006 premiere. It played 30 weeks off-Broadway across two sold-out seasons, as well as having five West End runs, and multiple North American and Australasian tours.

United boss Caulfield not happy with recent decisions going against his team

Published

on

Galway United manager John Caulfield: seeking a fairer deal from officials.

JOHN Caulfield has called for better officiating in games as the title race enters its final run-in, saying his side has been the victim of some marginal decisions in games against the top sides this season.

Speaking ahead of the visit of Bray Wanderers to Eamonn Deacy Park this Friday (7.45pm), the United manager said the big decisions in games against the other sides in the top three – Cork City and Waterford – have gone against United this season, and he says the repercussions of those ‘bad’ decisions are only felt by the managers and players.

“It is disappointing, there have been a number of decision in big games that have gone against us, I suppose you could call them controversial, tight decisions,” he said in the aftermath of last Friday’s 2-1 defeat away to Waterford FC, in which Conor McCormack was sent off, and Waterford were awarded two penalties, the second of which they converted nine minutes from time for a 2-1 win.

“You need strong decisions being made and we had two big decisions, major decisions, go against us. Unfortunately, it is the manager that take the hits rather than action being taken in the proper channels and that is disappointing,” he said.

He has a point to a degree: Wilson Waweru was sent off in United’s first game of the season when picking up two yellow cards in the 1-0 win away to Cork City, with the second booking in particular looking unfair on the United man.

Another trip to Turners Cross in July saw another red card, with Ed McCarthy getting his marching orders in the 16th minute for a trip on Cian Bargary, who was breaking on a counter-attack. Despite the foul taking place inside the City half, and both Conor O’Keeffe and Conor McCormack covering inside, Wexford referee Sean Grant decided on a red card.

Talk and workshop to accompany Twofold

Published

on

Artists and sisters Susan Campbell and Paula Hickey whose new show opens in Kinvara this Friday evening.

Twofold, joint exhibition from artist sisters Susan Campbell and Paula Hickey will open this Friday evening at 6pm, at the Courthouse Gallery in Kinvara, hosted by KAVA arts. It will run until Sunday, August 28,  with a talk and a workshop next week to coincide with the show.

Susan and Paula describe Twofold as their response to the dynamic processes and equilibriums found in nature.

Using a range of mediums, it references water cycles, geological formations and flora, including those local to the Burren.

Susan who lives in Wicklow, has a Higher National Diploma fine art, and an MPhil and PhD art history, who is now integrating her creative and research interests. She is concerned with natural dynamics, the structures that underly reality and the relationships between things. Paula who is based in Leeds, and who has a BA in graphic design and MA in creative practice, is a regular visitor to Kinvara. Her process is rooted in material play, through which, she believes, the more elusive aspects of human existence can be explored.
