cathed1.gif - 39466 Bytes The core of Galway first appears in 1124 when the castle of Bun Gaillmhe,"The mouth of the [River] Gaillimh" (Now known as the Corrib) was built for Toirrdelbach Ua Conchobar, King of Connacht. Although this castle was destroyed on two occasions, it was rebuilt by the De Burgos who then had the city under firm control. We do not know what the population of the settlement was at this time but there were obviously sufficently numerous and well-off body of inhabitants to finance the construction of the Church of St.Nicholas (patron saint of seafarers) 1320.

This period was the dawning of the settlement which is now Galway city. The city has endured much since the middle ages and is steeped in a rich history. Netaccess would like to bring you on tour of the many historical buildings,streets and walkways of the Republic Of Irelands third city.
