Old Galway

Steamboats come to Galway

Wed, Aug 10, 2022

One hundred and fifty years ago, on August 17, 1872, the paddle steamer Citiy of the Tribes was launched in South Shields in England. She was built by JT Eltringham, weighed 117 gross tons, and was registered for the Galway Bay Steamboat Company. Her arrival in the docks caused great excitement. She was hailed as heralding a new future for shipping in the west, the age of steam. She was the only steamboat in Galway, a paddle tug about 96ft x 18ft x 9ft, and as you can see from her schedule for July 1875 printed here, she was a busy vessel. On the days not listed, she travelled on excursions or to Aran.
