Nicholas Killoury

I've just heard that Nicholas, the legendary barman at Garavan's on Shop Street in Galway, died last Friday. Nicholas was a true original. It was from him that I borrowed the last two lines of my poem 'A Real Galwegian' which you can read here

The poem features in my 2005 poetry collection The Boy With No Face which can be purchased directly from the Salmon Poetry site here
