As we wave goodbye to Autumn and welcome Winter, this issue focuses on festivities and the joy of getting older. Throughout the magazine you will see nods to this theme, highlighting the beauty of old age and the opportunities it brings. This issue is also packed full of everything to inspire and uplift you for the months ahead including interviews with well-known Galway faces about their relationship with ageing, fashion forward Irish designs that are shaping the future, an artist in residence who created magic in the most unlikely of places, fresh new music, and the ultimate festive guide to see you through the Winter season. Plus, it also contains the best of beauty, health and wellbeing alongside all our regular wedding features and social pages.

Nothing brings us greater joy than seeing where you’re reading your copy of GALWAYnow, and we are sure over the festive season you’ll be turning those pages in great company and places so make sure to tag us as you read. 

Thanks as always to our readers, contributors and clients for their support in bringing this issue to life, and for all the support in 2022, we hope that it brings you many hours of positivity, joy and inspiration and look forward to seeing you again in print, in the new year.
