Galway City Historic Graveyards

This project was funded by the Heritage Council and Galway City Council as an action of the Galway City Heritage Plan. As part of Galway City Council's policy of making information on heritage freely available, a summary brochure, with a map of each of Galway City's 28 areas is being prepared. These are being printed along with a clear, easy to use map as a guide for those who visit our graveyards. The Monuments on the maps are numbered and are linked to the historicgraves.com and Galway City Council (www.galwaycity.ie) websites. This allows anyone anywhere to research their ancestry and kinship with those buried without charge. This is a public service. Copies of all leaflets which include Forthill, Magdalen Laundry, Menlo, Mercy Convent, Old Rahoon, Roscam, St Mary’s Dominican, St Patrick’s and Salthill Upper are available from the Heritage Office, Galway City Council, City Hall, College Road, Galway (Tel: 091 536547/536516) and from city library branches free of charge.
