Major launch by President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins
We have had a very exciting few weeks here at Galway City Museum particularly with the visit of our esteemed President Michael D. Higgins and Sabina Higgins for the launch of the Irish Historic Towns Atlas: Galway /Gailimh, Series 28 created by Jacinta Prunty and Paul Walsh. The publication and supporting exhibition produced by the Royal Irish Academy were launched on Tuesday 1st November 2016. It is a wonderful display of maps, plans and views tracing the topographical development of Galway city from its origins as a medieval borough and seaport. The exhibition runs in the museum foyer until January 2017 and the publication is available in all good book stores.
