This is why Ireland needs to change the laws around voting to give citizens a vote from abroad.

"This Friday, May 22 the Irish people are being asked to finally break a centuries long, murderous silence in the marriage referendum – and to do some good".

"On May 22nd, kindness will surge through the high roads and byroads of our little island, lighting up the darkest corners. I really and truly believe it’s going to turn out to be a very good day for this country. Don’t let anybody tell you differently."

This is definitely worth reading.

“Give up your private resentments, and show to the world that the Irish are not only a brave, but also a generous and forgiving people.”

This is truly emotional reading.

This is perfect. Give it a read if you're unsure about why civil partnership isn't the same as marriage. And then please #VoteYes  for Marriage Equality on May 22nd.

I write my own soundtrack.
Introduction

Hello, I'm also known as Mister Ebby, and I'm a pianist and songwriter from Galway, Ireland. 

Musically, I'm really interested in the overlap between indie folk, chamber/baroque pop and contemporary classical. There's a wonderful grey area where all these genres blur and blend together. 

In 2011 I successfully used crowdfunding to help cover the costs of my debut album "Wires" which you can stream in full on my Bandcamp store, where you can also buy it if you so wish. It's also available on the Google Play store, iTunes, and other digital outlets as well as various streaming services. Take your pick! 

I've worked as a pianist for a number of music acts over the years: jazz singers, rock bands, folk songwriters... and I make my living working as a Musical Director of a youth theatre group mostly alongside my other music pursuits. 



Other things I'm interested in: 

android : currently have a HTC Desire running a Jellybean ROM. I'm in love with my Nexus 7 tablet, and my next phone will hopefully be a Nexus too. 

I used to never watch TV, but now I watch a lot of TV shows, because they're awesome. Current shows I'm watching: Game Of Thrones ; Doctor Who ; The Walking Dead ; Supernatural ; Community ; Rupaul's Drag Race ; 

I a big fan of a few music artists, especially these: Kate Bush, Joanna Newsom, Fiona Apple, Sufjan Stevens, Björk... but you can check out my last.fm to see what I've been listening to a lot over the last few years. It doesn't really keep track of what I listen to on vinyl though, I'm afraid.

One of the best spots in salthill with microbrewery beers on tap, and a great food menu. A proper fireplace for cold winters and right by the prom for the nicer days. It's comfortable and there's plenty of space. Free wifi is a nice extra bonus on top. This is one of my favourite spots to be honest.

Great character to the different rooms, and a large outside seated smoking section at the back of the bar. Great menu for casual dining, with platters and tapas the main features. A brilliant selection of beers and wine. Some wonderful craft beers from a local brewery run by the same owners too. You'll be able to taste beers here that you won't find in many other places around the city or around the country. The available board games are a lovely touch, and the fireplace in the bar area keeps the place warm and comfortable in winter.

Best place to hear live music from international, Irish, and local music acts in the main venue downstairs and a weekly comedy night too. Lovely little intimate venue in the upstairs bar too, and the best seated outdoor smoking area in town upstairs too. Late bar every evening makes it the best alternative to paying into a club in town. Always busy, and always a good atmosphere and great music whether from the live acts or the late night DJs.

Wonderful menu of a variety of Spanish cuisine. I'm a big fan of the tapas menu, and tend to stick to that every time I go. You can end up having a quite reasonably priced meal with a selection of tapas, or you can blow the budget and go for some of the more expensive options on that menu. It's wonderful to be able to tailor your dining to your budget in that way. It books out quite often, so ring ahead to reserve a table as I've been disappointed many times when I've stopped in on a whim. Don't expect to be able to walk in and have a table on the busier nights later in the week. I recommend checking out the many different sherries they have on offer too, not just their great wine menu.

Quite a cheap menu mostly featuring pizza and pasta in a tiny little restaurant lit by candlelight. A brilliant little budget restaurant that's worth checking out. I'm a big fan of their pizzas, although the wine isn't anything special. The candlesticks made from old horseshoes are a quirky little touch. The place certainly has a charm and an atmosphere of its own.

The best pub in the centre of town to catch some live traditional music. Draws a mix of locals and tourists, and has a small seated smoking section out front on the pedestrian street. Good pints, and there's usually a seat to be found down at the back if you need one, but a crowd will gather and stand around the front and along the bar for the live music. It's a friendly, cosy spot where you'll find yourself chatting to strangers, and where locals and tourists mingle quite easily. Some great old photos on the walls too!

This has been my favourite pub in town for years. Cozy snugs, open fireplaces, and posters from theatre productions and arts festivals from years past. You can get a sneak peek at the cultural history of the town while having a good pint. Occasional live music in the pub but mostly the place is a hub of conversation. You'll be lucky to get a seat on busier evenings, and the outside seating is the perfect spot for a sunny day. Decent coffee too, and a small food menu for lunchtimes only, but definitely one of the best places for a pint in Galway.
