We have been somewhat slack with our posting on the site the last week as we were been away and have just returned to London following a short visit to the beautiful city of Galway located in the West Of Ireland. Hookedblog founder and photographer Mark Rigney was invited to Galway by the Design Galway 2016 festival to speak at their RE:Design series of talks held this year at the Mick Lally Theatre.

"It was wonderful to be invited back to Galway and give a talk in my home town to an eager audience of family, friends and festival attendees. Sharing with them the history of the site, how it came about along with a selection of images showcasing some of the best street art we have documented over the last ten years here in London and beyond." — Mark Rigney

Huge thanks to the Design Galway Festival and all their team for inviting us over and also for looking after us while we were in town. We had a blast, some great events at the festival, good food, coffee, lots of cocktails and WhiteHag beers and not forgetting a huge amount of Irish craic! What a great city to give a first talk about Street art we look forward to returning again soon.
