April Event: Galway Hooker Artisan Brewery Tour and Screening of “Atlantic”

Some photos from our April event. Thanks to Risteard O’Donnell for allowing us to screen his documentary Atlantic and for joining us for a Q&A. We were all struck by its powerfulness and the issues covered, particularly the ongoing and longterm impact on fishing.

And of course thanks again to Aidan of Galway Hooker Brewery for hosting.
