Girl on course somewhere in Ireland (6)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'in ireland' is the definition.
(I know that Galway is a county of Ireland)

'girl on course somewhere' is the wordplay.
'girl' becomes 'gal' (synonyms).
'on' says to put letters next to each other.
'course somewhere' becomes 'way' (way is a kind of course. I am not sure about the 'somewhere' bit.).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for galway that I've seen before include "flautist" , "Western City of the Tribes" , "part of Ireland" , "Irish city" , "County of W. Ireland" .)
