Galway will be the European Capital of Culture in 2020. As one of the largest cultural events in the world, Galway 2020 promises to deliver a year of thrilling, life-enhancing experiences through culture and the arts. The exciting pan-European programme for the year will see events in unexpected venues and locations throughout the region on the islands, in remote villages, in fields, mountains and on beaches. From food, music, dance, literature and visual arts to poetry, theatre, sport and largescale spectacle, everyone will get the opportunity to enjoy a fun-filled, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Lally Tours have proudly signed on as official sponsors for the year long event which will span the entire year of 2020.
As a Business Club Gold Member, we are boasting our support for such an enormous occassion, which will deliver over 2000 events throughout Galway City and County.
When we were asked to join the Business Club we simply asked the Galway 2020 team why bother? What would our contribution and help make? The answer was simple – It’s about the Galway and West of Ireland Community. It’s about enriching the lives of those of use who are lucky enough to live here. We at Lally Tours believe that events like these are major milestones which drive us to pull together, raise the bar that we have for ourselves and step everything up another couple levels.
Another huge reason we found ourselves drawn to supporting the team at Galway 2020 was the passion and enthusiasm that’s been shown towards the Irish language. The Irish language is something that is truly special to us at Lally Tours. It’s our family and many of our staff’s family’s first language and unfortunately it has been having some incredibly difficult chapters in it’s recent history.
It’s incredibly encouraging to see the team at Galway 2020 put the Irish language at the forefront of their advertising, calls for support, casting calls and throughout their messaging in general.
If you have the opportunity to show some support to Galway 2020, please go for it! It’s going to be on top of us before we know it.
