The transfer of ownership of the former St Anne’s Children’s Home in Lenaboy Castle, at Taylor’s Hill, from the Sisters of Mercy to the Galway City Council, has been agreed.

St Anne’s was situated in Lenaboy Castle on Taylor’s Hill. The old part of that building dates from the early 18th century. The house, which was situated on 63 acres of land, belonged to Colonel James O’Hara who was, in 1885, chairman of the town commissioners, and who founded a number of Galway industries. A lane led from the house to the gate of the estate which was beside where the Warwick Hotel is today.
The area we know today as Devon Park was originally part of the O’Hara Estate which was the land around Lenaboy Castle (now St Anne’s on Taylor’s Hill). The main gates to this estate were, and are, next door to the Warwick Hotel. Part of the estate wall ran along the main Salthill road.
Sherry FitzGerald welcomes No 2 Ruttledge Terrace to the market for sale by private treaty. No 2 Ruttledge Terrace, Salthill, is a four bed mid-terrace home built in the early 1900s and steeped in history. Ruttledge Terrace was acquired by Michael F Joyce in 1913, and the row of five terrace houses was built between 1913 and 1924. Michael Joyce sold No 2 to the Doyle family, and the property has remained in the family for generations.
Lenaboy Park has often been described as Salthill’s secret garden, just a three minute walk from the famous Salthill Promenade.
Galway City Museum needs your help to tell Galway’s revolutionary story in a new exhibition entitled Revolution in Galway, 1913-1923, due to open in Spring 2016. This exhibition offers Galway people the chance to have their story told alongside the national story that we are already so familiar with. The Revolutionary years leading up to the Easter Rising of 1916 through to the War of Independence and the Irish Civil War had a major impact on the shaping of modern Ireland. What part did Galway play? What steered ordinary Irish people on the path towards Irish Nationalism?
