“I hadn’t hitched from Malaga to Galway to hang out with a crusty from Surrey!”
Cartoon from Charlie Adley’s latest column over at Double Vision. Charlie’s columns also appear weekly in the Connacht Tribune. This cartoon riffs on how long you’ve to be in Galway before Galwegians think of you as Galwegian. I remember hearing it was 3 generations when I was in college. Even then the blow-ins outnumbered the “locals”! Galway’s a warm and welcoming town and your blow-in status was never held against you!
