Bridge of Portumna - Reel

The Bridge of Portumna is yet another ode to Galway where Martin grew up. As a child, he would often cross this bridge Portumna that lies east of the town of Portumna, in County Galway, Ireland across the River Shannon to County Tipperary.  Martin always harbored a fascination with bridges often sketching them but nothing could prepare him for the bridges of NYC!
