Gorgeous morning in Galway as we give the go-ahead to two major capital projects.

Galway city will host one of our ten Further Education Colleges of the Future, while ATU Galway has been given the green light for a new teaching and learning facility.

A great day for Galway!
Minister @SimonHarrisTD announcing a major capital investment in a new College of Further Education to serve the counties of Galway & Roscommon, conferring genuine respect upon the students & teachers of @GRETBOfficial #furthereducation
I cannot recommend coderdojo clubs enough. So many mathematical concepts embedded in coding and they don’t even know they’re learning. Love the ethos of coderdojo too no competition - Just come along and have fun. Huge thanks to the volunteers @coderdojoathenr

FG reopened Templemore
FG are recruiting 1,000 more Gardaí
FG are increasing Garda resources
FG are recruiting 400 civilian staff

Our political tradition founded the Gardaí 100 years ago & have always supported them, we know what SF’s political tradition think of Gardaí..

Not surprising at all when you consider that Irish America traces its roots to that 19th century exodus from Ireland to America caused by the Great Famine.
Replying to @DanMulhall @IrishStewCast and 1 otherfalse
At the end of the Great Famine over 25% of the population of Manhattan was Irish born. In fact New York City held the largest urban population of Irish born people anywhere in the world, including Ireland.
Here's an idea....

It’s an excellent idea and they should use the taxes collected to subsidise e-bikes for their young people.
Hey dad, are we working the construction site today?
No Charlie, just walking to a party.

That to me was just so disappointing, a real low point. It’s the level of our ambition right now. We cloak our children in yellow clothing and hope that the problem of road deaths will just go away.
A global league table, with Ireland third from the top, normally something to celebrate, but in this instance something to be deeply disappointed about.
Wow. At long last, the NY Times places the US's abysmal record for road safety in international context.…

In 9 days Ireland celebrates the centenary of independence. One of our remarkable achievements is that the Irish are now amongst the most well-educated people on the planet. The majority of adults have a higher education qualification. Only a handful of countries can claim that.
It’s been a really tragic year on Irish roads. So many people who never made it home to their loved ones. My deepest sympathy to all of the bereaved. Do we just accept that these deaths are inevitable or are we really serious about making our roads safer? #VisionZero
Pedestrian (40s) dies after being struck by car in Galway overnight…
So much going on in Irish artisan food production at the moment, really great ingredients, carefully crafted and not flown halfway around the world. This from @shinesseafood being a perfect example. (Also healthy and delicious!)… #thebestofus
#clonfert cathedral in #Galway. Burial place of St. Brendan who sailed to America. The decorations around the door in his honour.
It’s a fascinating place. In 1579 Elizabeth I wrote to the Bishop of Clonfert and proposed erecting a university there for "instruction and education of youth in learning.” TCD won out in the end. Imagine if it had been TCC…….
I can't wait to be able to land in Dublin Airport, rent a bike there and cycle on segregated greenway at least as far as Galway. When that is a reality the green tourism boom in Ireland will have really begun.

In 10 days' time we will celebrate the centenary of Ireland's independence. We have a lot to be proud of. We live 25 years longer than the Irish did in the 1920s, for example, that's a whole generation we've added to our lifespan. 1/2
In a classic midlife crisis move I’ve gone and got myself a road bike.

Looking for some advice:

1. Should I get a computer? Which one?

2. Should I get a camera? Which one?

3. No mudguards? Really?

Thanks in advance!

Congrats! 1. Should I get a computer? Yes, if you feel it’s important to track progress & navigate new routes. Anything by Wahoo/Gamin is a good start. 2. Should I get a camera? Over to @SafeCyclingEire 3. No mudguards? These for the winter.…
Sofiane Sehil is one of the most accomplished ultra distance bike racers in the world. He has won some of the most famous ultra distance races & is master of riding for prolonged distances & sleeping very little, these adventures give us some entertaining but extreme stories.
A vital link in a new fully segregated greenway, connecting Dublin to Galway, a truly transformative development for our country.
This is the new pedestrian & cycling bridge we are building across the river Shannon in Athlone. It’s an example of the real changes we are making right across the country, improving our local environment, setting us on a more sustainable path. #GPAC22 #BridgeToTheFuture
The case for reallocation of road space.

Bus into Galway moving efficiently along a clear bus lane.

Then, a left slip lane, no bus lane and the bus is stuck in traffic.

We need to reprioritise road space for public transport serving all, over the private car serving no-one.
A brilliant story. Tom and his family @ClareenBanjos ship beautiful instruments all over the world, with Japan featuring regularly! The Galway lads @WeBanjo3 are also great banjo ambassadors and regular visitors to Clarinbridge.
► VIDEO: For over 40 years a Galway family have been making banjos that "will last a lifetime"…
My best friend and closest companion for over fifteen years, Penny died unexpectedly in her sleep last night. She was a beautiful little weirdo and I’ll miss her more than I can say

Never easy saying goodbye to an old friend. Take care, C.
What a fascinating interview with the incredibly talented @eimearnoone. Loved her words at the end; “The musical brain is the same. Just because the vehicle that carries it around is a different shape, or a different colour, well who cares, a stick of rosewood isn’t very heavy”.
What’s the hardest climb you’ve ridden (drop a pic below) ?

And what made it so hard ?

I’ll go first….

Alto d’letras in Colombia

It’s 80km long, the altitude was brutal but I’d hardly ridden for 6 months prior to riding it.

I suffered all the way up

Second time up Ventoux from the Malaucene side, having done Bedoin ascent, on the way to a “Cingles” later that day. Malaucene ascent is as tough, if not tougher than Bedoin side. C
Lots of people out this afternoon in Loughrea, supporting local and getting some Black Friday bargains! Managed to get some treats for my own daughters from Hope’s Bakery!
A great rebuke to the rising sentiment that people who disagree - even profoundly - can’t be friendly. Again, how boring would it be if we all agreed all the time?

🧑‍💼👨‍💼👩‍🏭👩‍💻The Temporary Business Energy Support Scheme will help eligible businesses with their energy bills, up to a max of €10,000 per month.

This is another way Fine Gael is putting money back in people’s pockets and helping with the cost of living.

A busy start to Friday morning, holding a meeting with our East Galway business people and Minister @simoncoveney in the @Loughreahotel1. Listening and learning from the people who create jobs.

Mortirolo. Steep, no rest, claustrophobic.
Loved this description;
So, the Mortirolo. A first and a last. The only thing going for it is the stone at the top. Garbage from bottom to top. A climb for lab rats.

On @TodaywithClaire on @RTERadio1 earlier discussing the new circular to all schools today informing them of their obligations under the new Special Education Legislation.

This will ensure every child will have access to a school place!

Another great stakeholder meeting around 'Inclusive School Communities' in Galway this evening with @ciarancannon @SeanKyneGalway
Great to hear from those on the frontline offering constructive feedback and solutions to complex issues in Special Education.

🏡Fine Gael will continue to deliver homes through the Help to Buy Scheme, Shared Equity Scheme and Land Development Agency.

Sinn Féin continues to oppose these which slows down progress.

Moonlit landscape taken on the summit of Diamond Hill in Connemara Co Galway. A really incredible sight to witness, leave the eyes adjust and it doesn’t take long to see this! @ConnemaraIe
I'm working on a little film about the influence of Irish emigration on British music.

Oasis, Beatles, Smiths, Kate Bush, Ed Sheeran, Johnny Rotten, Dusty Springfield, Dexy's, and on and on.

Ireland's economy is forecast to grow faster than that of any other @OECD nation in 2023. Growth of 3.8% in GDP will exceed that of 38 other developed nations. Yes, domestic spending growth will be less, but this is a fabulous place to be by any reckoning
