Old Galway Trade & Industry

It is from the ordinary and everyday items of yesteryear that we glean an accurate picture of the past. Ceramic jugs, odd shaped bottles, clay pipes and advertising mirrors, transport us back to a town, over a hundred years ago, when its citizens relied on local indigenous industry -light years removed from the globalized economy of the
21st century. The artefacts displayed here were once part of the Old Galway City Museum’s permanent exhibition.
