A pig fair in Eyre Square

image preview

Hely Dutton, in his survey of County Galway in 1824, wrote: “In every considerable town there is a market for fat cattle and sheep once a week. The earliest cattle fairs in Galway were held at Fairhill (hence the name) but in the 19th century, they moved to Eyre Square. It was where the farmer sold his product to other farmers, to butchers and to visiting dealers. It was where town and country met, where the rural people would come to town to sell, then buy whatever necessities they needed before returning home."

People of the Tribes: Meet Alex.

Hello, my name is Alex Browne. I am 16 years old and I have been living in Galway my entire life. I originally lived in Corrach Buí, but then I moved to Manusflynn in the country when I was around five. I do not remember much about Corrach Buí because I was so young and it was such a long time ago. The one thing I do remember is the colourful neighbours I had while living in Corrach Buí. They all had very unique personalities that made them all stick out, a quite common character trait for Galway people. Manusflynn, where I currently live is just as lovely as Corrach Buí, it is quite a small area next to Charlistrane and Headford. It is home to a few farmers, and all though I myself am not a farmer, this did not stop the farmers from greeting me with hospitality when I first moved in, this is a prime example of the caring people that reside in Galway.
