As Friday draws closer, so the plans for the weekend intensify! If you’re not hooked on the Winter Olympics and are looking for something to do this weekend, here are a few of the things going on around campus and in town over the weekend (and the coming weeks) that might be of interest.
⇒ The SU Charity Croagh Patrick Climb takes place this Saturday, February 17th in conjunction with NUI Galway Mountaineering Club. Fingers crossed for some decent weather for you guys!!
⇒ Irish Singer-Songwriter Ryan Sheridan will be performing Live @ The Lounge, in McGettigan’s off Eyre Square on Saturday 17th February. Regular tickets are a respectable €15 (limited availability of early bird tickets are only €10!) and are available at the door & on Eventbrite.ie.
⇒ Vintage clothing sales are always a fan favourite for students, so don’t miss out on Tola Vintage Kilo sale that’s taking place this Sunday, February 18th in The Galmont Hotel & Spa (formerly The Radisson Blu) Lough Atalia Road. With a €1 entry, simply find what you want, have it weighed and get a kilo (kg) of clothes for €20. Not to be missed for vintage fans!
⇒ As always, I will be running T.G.I. Friday (5-8pm) and The Global Lounge (Saturday 12-3pm) over the weekend. They will be taking place in The Hub, Aras na Mac Leinn. These are relaxed, fun, student-led events with copious amounts of food, snacks (both healthy and not so healthy!) for anybody around campus over the weekend that wants to meet new people, take a break from studying or just have a chat over a tea/coffee!
⇒ Although not this weekend, the JobsExpo returns to Galway on Saturday 24th of February in the Galmont Hotel & Spa (formerly The Radisson Blu) Lough Atalia Road. It runs from 10 am until 4 pm, and it will feature hundreds of active job opportunities at home and abroad. And the best part?? No entrance fee!
Hopefully, these will give you some options for things to do this weekend!
Have fun & be safe,
