It's time to announce the latest recipients of the Heart of the City award, where we celebrate the best places to meet fellow City supporters around the world!
Congratulations to The Western, home of the Galway Branch of the Official MCFC Supporters Club who will be receiving their award very soon to proudly display.
The Western has been the proud home of the Galway Blues for some ten years now after the branch moved from their previous meeting place at The Goalpost Bar.
We were inundated with emails from members of the branch who each had nothing but praise for their adopted home and MCFC were particularly impressed with the family atmosphere that is created in The Western on match days.
Brendan Hynes from the Galway Blues explains, "Many of our friends that we have met over the years in Manchester are frequent visitors to Galway and always pass comment on such a good set up that we have. We have an arrangement with the management that on any televised match they will give out superb finger food (not just sandwiches) free to all on premises be they the opponent fans or anyone else.
Galway Manchester City supporters club is all about City, community and most importantly our younger members who are made so welcome.
We will be catching up with our friends in Ireland when they receive their plaque and announcing the next Heart of the City destination very soon!
