It still feels tight when I first put it on in the morning. but opens up during the day. I also have a lace-up boot in size UK9E on the 202 last that is wearable but a little more room in the forefoot than I would like. Am I better off in UK9D or UK9E for the Galway in the 82 last? I'm leaning toward the latter because I would be wearing thicker socks with the boot, and the boot can be laced tighter than a shoe.

I wear D and E widths more or less interchangeably on numerous EG lasts (UK9) - with one exception: 82 last (I need an E width as D is too tight). In my experience, an 82 lasted shoe or boot in D width fits significantly narrower than a shoe or boot in D width on, say, the 888 or 202.

I have an 82 lasted bal that is crazy snug - it works because I had it stretched (I only bought them because they were a steal).

Axels sells its Galways on the 82 and only in D width. They are too tight for me - and I have a medium to slightly narrow foot.

The Galway can pull off this double duty, right? Basically I need to be able to wear them casually or it isn't worth the investment to me. Any other Galway owners want to weigh in?

The Galway is a field boot. However, some of the iterations are poncified (cf. CT Brummie) so they can be worn in town and some are suited just for semi-dress wear.
If you don't get the 64 lasted Ridgeway make-up, then most, if not all, of the others can be worn as you describe.

Beautiful shoes RogerP. And in -10 °C (feels like - 20 °C) weather no less. You are a far braver man than I.
