The Slave Trade in Galway

After the Cromwellian campaign in Ireland (after 1653) over 95% of the land of Ireland was forcibly taken from irish and Norman hands and given to English and Settler owners. Those that resisted or rebelled were either killed or shipped off as slaves to barbados, Jamaica, Bermuda and Montserrat. Most died working on the sugar plantations.
