She is having a mental breakdown the past year or so and I've watched her get worse as the months went on. She lives very close to Eyre Square , towards Prospect Hill so that makes it easier for her to always be around shouting/singing . I could hear her at 3am last night shouting/singing as loud as she could. Hopefully she gets the help she badly needs.
She's just not taking her meds that's literally what it is
I actually know her for years, she's one of the nicest people you could ever meet but yeah she has a bit of bipolar or something going on I think. Her mum died last year and I think that hasn't helped obviously. The singing is a bit alarming out of nowhere but she's totally harmless
I don't know her personally, but over the last 3 to 4 years and in between lockdowns, I would always run into her in a cafe near the sq. She was always friendly to talk to and never seemed like there was any touch of the crazies. We'd often have a good long chat, but never anything personal. I was completely shocked the first day that I saw her doing her new act. Have even met her in the cafe since she started this and is still a good chat. Genuinely hope she Is ok and gets what she needs.
Yes she is a beautiful person. I often chatted to her and she appeared completely normal..
"This is NOT the forum to discuss her"
Yet you name her and discuss her character and family...
I did not initiate any discussion in this forum.
And I complimented her character rather than criticised her. There's nothing wrong with that. You're just nit picking.
Your a forum nazi
Your'e calling someone a Nazi for pointing out someone else's hypocrisy, bit much don't ya think?
Everyone in Galway knows who she is but nobody seems to know her backstory. She just seemingly appeared outta nowhere one day during the year, I’ve been living in Galway for 5 years 3 of those spent working in a bar in the city center but never heard or seen her only in the last 7 or so months she appeared
Same, in Galway 10 yrs and only noticed her this year.
She’s been in Galway for over 20 years…
Her backstory is NONE of your business. She is a LOVELY lady and needs Psychiatric help..She comes from a very respectable family. This is NOT the forum to discuss her.
Let me just white knight real quick
Awhh are your feelings hurt
Not in the slightest. Why would you even think that.
Dya know, If I had the ability to not give a fuck and sing in public, Id have a great life
It be liberating.
Imagine everyone doing that ?
What a free world it would be.
Not giving a fuck
Instead just keep your head down and get to work like an obedient wage slave
I know i'd be singing that new song by Lizzo. Great tune
I’ve heard she went though a horrible divorce and had some sort of mental breakdown and hasn’t really recovered since then. Poor lady
I feel she has been failed by the system and she is not getting the help she needs. She is such a kind person. She gave me good advice in the past. Very friendly too when others wouldn't give you the time of day.
i know her. she loves singing with buskers aswell. my partner and i used to busk in eyre square and shed always come up to us dancing and singing and smiling. she’s a lovely lady, very nice. i know she told my partner that she struggles with mental illness, what kind i don’t know.
She is a beautiful person. It's nobody's business what she does.
There is no mental health support for people like this in Ireland. Unfortunately we have plenty of money to house asylum seekers tho.
as said as above she’s unfortunately in the middle of a mental breakdown. Not entirely sure if it’s true however the story i’ve heard is that she used to be a teacher until the husband died and she hasn’t taking the husbands death well. Hopefully she gets the help she needs
She used to be an accountants secretary and she's just not taking her meds that's exactly what it is
That story you heard is untrue.
She’s from oranmore , or at least that’s where I’ve seen her get on the bus . She goes around and sings and seems to be nice but having a mental breakdown she’s told me before she has kids and there 19 or so but I’ve only ever seen her alone . She once took a dog from outside a shop and started wandering away with it but besides that she seems harmless
I was told her story but I don't know if it is true and not willing to share. It n is clear she isn't very well and I hope she gets the help she needs
I admire you for respecting her privacy.
She's this mentally ill woman that is one of Galways many many "characters" that add so much soul to the place! Other characters include deep spiralling alco's and drug addicts who might say something slightly witty from time to time.
She’s one of the craziest folk I’ve seen around town in a long time. She appeared during the first lockdown and always makes her presence known. I used to work in a shop in town and she’d come in and absolutely drive us demented. I know she’s been banned from a few shops for her abusive behaviour. I don’t know how she’s still out on the streets to be honest.
You must be talking about somebody else. She is a very kind person not in the slightest bit abusive and don't be so judgemental.
I don’t know why you’ve got such a horn for her, and no I’m only talking about her. It’s hard to get her confused. Also stating the obvious isn’t judgemental, she shouldn’t be out on the streets when she’s CLEARLY unwell.
She isn't related to me but would you like if your relative was discussed like this on a public forum. I'm sure you wouldn't. Show some empathy and what evidence have you that she was barred. She is not violent or aggressive.
You clearly don’t know her at all so. Have you worked in any shops in town and had the pleasure of having her come in shouting and roaring? Clearly not. If it bothers you so much maybe don’t go onto Reddit? Just a thought.
But I know all about how ignorant some people working in shops are. They take their frustration at low pay etc out on customers present company excluded. I genuinely think you mistaken. The lady I know is as gentle as a fly..
You sound like the most sour individual. You’re the customer everyone hates I imagine, also flys are really fucking annoying and most people want to kill them🙃
You sound dreadful criticising a lovely lady who harms nobody.
I’m so sorry, I never realised that she was your sister. Maybe you could get her the help she so desperately needs instead of trying to defend her to everyone on here who CLEARLY disagrees with you? Or even better still, why don’t you join her in one of her many singalongs? Ye could start busking together? If you play an instrument that would be even better, at least then when people record her and mock her on TikTok it won’t look so bad.
No she is not my sister and nor did I ever say she was my sister and nor is she related to me so please stop deliberately misinformed people by saying she is my sister. I'm co corned for her welfare. Furthermore contrary to what you say, many agree that it's wrong to be so judgemental and dismissive of a person with mental illness. Please Show some empathy.
Would you lock her away would you?
Wouldn’t do any harm would it? She’s not exactly in the right frame of mind to be out on her own is she? What’s your solution to the problem? Continue to have people recording her making a fool of herself on the daily and posting it on socials to mock her?
Why does it concern you so much what this lady does. Why don't you mind your own business and leave the woman alone she is harmless.
Well what would locking her away achieve? Suppresses what she is going through with heavy meds? Keep her a zombie?
Does she need supervision going out and about then?
Like a guide dog?
Shes Able to go out and about only causing offense to the contraries
Guide dogs? Is she visually impaired? No she’s off her rocker, what lunatic would give her a dog? I think that would constitute animal abuse.
So she is a animal abuser now? What else is she abusive towards then?
So you’d give a dog to an unhinged woman who spends her days shouting and roaring up and down the street? I love how you’re just trying to downplay very serious mental health issues.
Who is she harming only your sensitive eardrums?
Heard she’s had a few failed suicide attempts, had some sort of trauma and is just on some sort of downward spiral
I've no clue who you're talking about.
