PICS: Shaggy’s holidaying in Galway

If you were passing famous Irish pub Moran’s of the Weir in Galway over the last few days and thought “No, it couldn’t have been him”, you were wrong.

Yup, Shaggy is in fact holidaying in Ireland.

The 'Wasn't Me' singer has been spotted touring around Galway and Dublin with family and friends.

Taking to his Instagram on his flight he declared his first port of call would be a pint of the black stuff: “Flew into NY this morning in now on a flight to Ireland.... Need a Guinness! #familyTime”

And of course he followed it up with: "Ain't nothing like having a pint in Ireland! The Guinness taste totally different here! Better."

Aside from the Guinness, he has been enjoying quality time with his children Sydney and Richard.

How cool does the medieval experience in Athenry look?

He also performed at the Toronto Reggae Festival earlier this week before landing on our shores.

Who knows, he might give us a tune in the local over the next few days.

Last week, I shared my lockdown experience. I asked for a more uniform approach, should there be another lockdown. I explained that I worked mornings. Maybe I should have been more specific: working 8am to 1pm without a break, I gave feedback and covered the curriculum, using our school’s online platform. In the afternoons, I looked after my three kids (all under ten) while my husband worked. It was a challenging time for everyone and the uncertainty around what I should have been doing as a teacher made it harder.Diary of an Irish teacher: I want to get back to work.
