Hello 2023! For our first issue of the year, which is on shelves now, we have channelled themes of sustainability, hope and adventure.

Our main feature, Changing Tides highlights the strength, determination and self-awareness of two of the best athletes in the world, both from Galway. Their stories are motivational, but not in the way one might expect at this time of year. Instead we have focused on the importance of purpose, passion and vulnerability for the future.

This issue is also packed full of content to uplift you for the months ahead including interviews, slow-fashion revolutionaries, an artist in residence who goes with the flow, and a wedding guide with a love story spread across two continents. It also contains our regulars including great recipes, local artists and Irish businesses.

We can’t wait to see where you are welcoming in these new months so make sure to tag us as you read. Thank you as always to our readers, contributors and clients for their support in bringing this issue to life, we look forward to everything that lies ahead and wish you a wonderful new year.
