Ray “Fox” Galway

After 41 years living “away” in Ontario, Ray (Fox) Galway returned home to Bell Island, his birthplace, to retire and work as a tour guide. The son of a miner, his father worked in the mines for roughly 30 years.
Only twelve years of age at the time of the closure, Ray still has many cherished memories of the old days when miners would gather at his house on Saturday nights to socialize and spin yarns of their work in the deeps. Because of these stories, when he made his own first visit down into the mines many years later, the moment was an emotional one. The visit reminded him of the stories told by the old miners who had shared them, many Saturday nights in the past.
A part-time singer and all-around entertainer, Ray loves working at the #2 Mine Tour and Museum and meeting our guests from around the world.

The #2 Mine Tour and Museum will be re-opening on May 19th, 2024. We can't wait to see you soon!
