Galway Walking Tours - My Favourite Quote;  "I bring to you today the greetings of the people of Galway, New York; Dublin, New Hampshire; the people of Killarney, West Virginia; Kilkenny, Minnesota; the people of Limerick, Maine; and the people of Shamrock, Texas."  JFK's speech in Galway, June 1963

 

Galway Walking Tour, Norman Abbey

The Vikings raided abbeys and monasteries all around Ireland. they came to Galway in 870 ad and raided the abbey at Annaghdown, completely surprising the monks and the O'Flahertys who were the local lords. The vikings were so happy that thought they would come back again for a second dip the following year. This time the O'Flahertys were waiting for them and killed everyone on the two viking longboats. Once bitten twice shy!
