Well, we landed the first Galway Chapter event safely at An Púcán and it was only fabulous! Ken and Peter were on hand and gave a great insight into Irish Whiskey and the Society, we had planned initially to taste 4 Whiskies as a locally supported recruitment evening and we ended up tasting SEVEN fabulous liquids including an as yet unreleased Irishman, Redbreast 12, Bushmills 16, Tyrconnell Madiera Finish, Tullamore DEW 4 cask finish single malt and Society Teeling bottling.

Massive thanks to An Púcán for hosting and support and especially for the additional sample of their Carcavelos finished Teeling Single Cask and then to top it off - food platters for all attending.
Big thanks also to McCambridge's and Garavan's who provided a bottle each to the event.

The Galway Chapter is up and running! Looking forward to next event already! Tell your friends out west!

I've added an image from the evening and there's loads of images here.. https://www.facebook.com/IWSGalway

Sláinte agus Gaillimh Abú!

Cyril

Weldone Cyril,

By the sounds of it and look, it was a huge success.

I have linked ye through the main Society Facebook page so any traffic through there might throw a few people your way.

Am heading over from America tomorrow for a couple weeks to attend the Awards and WhiskeyLive (evening session). Would be delighted to meet members of the Galway chapter, and in fact will probably be heading to Galway during my stay to do the Trail, etc.

Best,
Pat
