The Galway Races are Decadent and Depraved

The Galway Races’ primary function is to serve as a justification for the town's adult population to get dressed up, imbibe, and lose money on ill conceived bets. The ensuing chaos provides the perfect opportunity for Galway's youth to engage in some debauchery of their own.

A new Irish youth culture rubs up against the oldest of Irish traditions. We see the awkwardness of adolescence. The performance of machismo. Dad's suit, Ma's heels and bottles of buckfast.
