Galway Talks is a mix of current affairs, human interest stories, entertainment and even some live music thrown in for good measure.   

From local and national politics to community issues, voices from across the county and beyond discuss and debate the major events affecting Galway, the country and the world.   

There’s a lighter side too as we feature the stories of local characters, the talent of Galway’s arts scene and debate the county’s many sporting achievements.  

Diverse and always compelling, Galway Talks looks to give the people of Galway a voice to share their stories.   


What is a Geo Park? There is one on our door step. Geologist Benjamen Thebaudeau joined Keith Finnegan on this podcast to tell him all about the work involved.
