The coast of Galway comes in many guises. You’ll find yellow coral beaches and turquoise water in Carraroe. White sand and azure sea in Inverin. Crowds of holidaymakers stretched out on the sand between boulders of pink granite at Salthill.
The coastline of South Galway is not as glamourous as any of these places…at first glance. Look a little harder though and you’ll find a part of Ireland with a more subtle beauty, and those of us who live there wouldn’t be anywhere else.

One hot Saturday in September, I went to the quay at Killeenaran with the idea of sketching something unusual that I’d heard would be happening there. This is what the quay looks like on a normal day:

Pretty quiet, unless it’s a hot day and high tide. Then there’ll be people coming and going on bikes, in cars and on foot, in swimming togs, to swim off the quay. But to the best of my knowledge there is almost never a table, dressed up in a smart white tablecloth and laden with food, right at the water’s edge.
