Andy Friend’s side had to withstand a late resurgence from the Welsh side towards the end of the game when they were reduced to 14 men but held on to get the well-deserved win. The harsh weather conditions at the start affect

Galway's Guide to Great Guinness with Molly O'Connor and Tomás Herlihy

As the weather has improved to “beer garden weather,” it was only right that Galway Pulse sent two of their harshest critics to investigate the most important question to any person coming to the West. Is the Guinness any good?
