Working early on this dark and cold morning so here's a photo of @galwaycathedral I took last Friday through the #figtree at #Newtownsmith. Its the only example of it I know growing wild in Galway. There are plans to install a #footbridge here as the #salmonweirbridge is very narrow. The fig tree will have to be removed.

Also yesterday, the Holy Father, Pope Francis, appointed the Most Reverend Brendan Kelly, Bishop of Achonry, as the new #BishopofGalway, #Kilmacduagh and #Kilfenora. It is planned that Bishop Brendan’s installation will take place in the Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and Saint Nicholas on 11 February 2018, the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. Best wishes for the future.

Tonight I’m going to the Boars Head pub in the east end to listen to my the stories of my great x4 cousin Len Gibson who was in the Sunderland’s 125 Anti-Tank Regiment taken prisoner by the Japanese at the fall of Singapore in 1942. Len spent the rest of the war working in the POW camps on the Burma Death Railway & Mergui Road.
If you can’t come tonight, Len wrote a book “A Wearside Lad in World War” you can find it on amazon.
