Brian Nolan from Galway Walks will be running a maritime themed walk on Saturday from Nimmos Pier to Blackrock, walking the route while discussing the history of the area, especially in relation to its connection with the sea (Time for walk is to be confirmed).

A sandcastle competition is planned for Ladies Beach at 2pm on Sunday afternoon (weather permitting). This will be very much a family event and will be free to enter.
