Galway Bay: Live Green, Eat Irish

On September 10th, Clean Currents own Lynn gardner hit the golf course as part of the 13th Annual Galway Bay Golf Tourament. The tournament worked to raise enough frunds to install 15 new water wells in the Holy Cross Parish Community of Nhkamenya, Malawi.

Galway Bay is part of the Irish Restaurant Company in Anne Arundel County, MD. All three of the company’s locations, Brian Boru, Galway Bay and Killarney House are 100% wind powered through Clean Currents. The Irish Restaurant Company also minimize their carbon footprint through recycling, rain barrels, earth friendly serving products, re-using materials for renovations, recycling cooking oil into biofuel, eliminating plastic, using environmentally friendly cleaning products, minimizing water usage, and much more. Galway Bay was the first restaurant in Maryland to be certified as a Maryland Green Travel Partner.

Being green goes beyond the company’s Irish roots. As Anthony Clarke, Partner and CFO explains, “with the love and respect for our home country of Ireland and growing up with its beautiful 40 shades of green we all agreed as responsible business owners… that it is important to become environmental stewards by reducing our carbon footpring in each of our three locations.” The Galway Bay motto is to “Live Green Eat Irish.”
