  • This page consists mostly of photographs - which may take some considerable time to transfer from the Internet system.

  • All of these photographs were taken on Thursday July 29th 1999.

  • Thursday of "GALWAY RACE WEEK" is traditionally known as "Ladies' Day" - the day many of the women dress up in great style for the races, and really set out to enjoy themselves in the evening around the city center and seaside areas.
