More than 70 properties were opened to the public by O’Donnellan & Joyce throughout the western seaboard this week, from Galway to Donegal and from Galway to Kerry, where first time buyers and investors in particular flocked to view what is believed to be one of the largest auctions ever held in the west of Ireland.
"Wild and wonderful" is how O’Donnellan & Joyce is describing its Wild Atlantic Way all day property auction which will take place on Wednesday May 4 in the Harbour Hotel, Galway.
The Collegiate Church of St Nicholas of Myra is the largest medieval parish church in Ireland and its history is a kind of microcosm of the history of Galway. The earliest part of the present church dates from the beginning of the 14th century and includes the chancel with its three windows in the south wall. However it is possible that there was an earlier structure on the site. There is a legend that a man from the Aran Islands who died in 1580 aged 220 years could remember a time when the church did not exist but that just sounds a likely story. The records that exist suggest that the church was founded in or about the year 1320.
O’Donnellan & Joyce is set to hold another massive auction on Wednesday May 4 in the Harbour Hotel, New Dock Road, Galway, where more than 70 properties will go under the hammer.

There is tremendous variety and diversity, all of which must be sold, with exceptional value for first time buyers and investors alike. Some of the highlights of the properties that will be on offer on May 4 are listed below.
While enjoying a quieter location than most city centre properties, this upscale waterfront hotel is just a stroll from Eyre Square and all Galway has to offer. There is a modern restaurant serving afternoon tea and a sleek bar with a cocktail menu. Breakfast, lunch, coffee, cake, dinner and wine, it has the lot. There is always a mix of families, groups of friends, and couples young and old in the dining room.
Home Rule was once the goal of Irish nationalism, but continual opposition from the House of Lords and the threat of violence from Ulster unionists dogged and delayed its achievement.
One hundred and sixty eight years ago this week, on March 8, work started on the cutting of what we know as the Eglinton Canal. There had been previous attempts to open a passage from the river to the sea. As far back as 1498, the then mayor had a plan to connect the Sandy River with Lough Athalia. It was Alexander Nimmo who first mooted the idea of a canal in 1822. If steamboats could travel from the docks to the Corrib, it would greatly enhance the commercial importance of the city and a valuable connection with the hinterland would be established. His original plan was that this connection would start at the top of Woodquay, where McSwiggan’s is today, go along Eglinton Street and down the west side of Eyre Square to the docks. The cost proved to be prohibitive and there were a lot of objections from people who owned land or a business along the route.
