Galway City Through Time, Paperback Book

Description

Galway, the capital of Connacht, lies at the mouth of the River Corrib, on the north-east shore of the beautiful Galway Bay on the west coast of Ireland.

Founded by the de Burgh family in the early thirteenth century, Galway was an Anglo- Norman colony within a Gaelic hinterland.

A walled town developed and, under the control of fourteen merchant families (the Tribes of Galway), prospered as a result of trade links with the continent.

Galway has changed dramatically in recent decades but has still managed to retain much of its historic character.

Today, it is a modern and thriving city, and a centre of culture, learning and industry.

Galway City Through Time combines archive and contemporary images with informative captions to tell the story of this remarkable city and its people.
