Galway is hoping that the Ironman triathlon event this Sunday will bring an early autumn tourism boost to the region.
It is hosting Ironman for the second year in a row, having beaten off stiff competition from 70 other countries to stage the sports event.
Approximately 2,500 participants have registered to take part with 25,000 overnight visitors expected in the area.
