The Galway City Historic Graveyards Survey Project

The history of Galway is found in it's graveyards. The Tribes and families who built this city have left their names carved on gravestones and the stories of their lives can be traced by following in their footsteps around the graveyards, across the city's parishes and further afield. This project is 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 27 or so burial areas is being prepared. To date, the survey of Old Rahoon, Menlo, St Mary's Dominican and Roscam graveyards are complete. The brochures have been printed along with a clear easy to use map as a guide for those who visit the graveyards. The monuments on the maps are numbered and are linked to the historicgraves.com and Galway City Council websites. This allow anyone anywhere to research their ancestry and kinship in these graveyards. Copies of the leaflets are available from the Heritage Office, Galway City Council, City Hall, College Road, Galway (091 536547/536516) and from city library branches free of charge and can be downloaded from the individual aforementioned graveyards on historicgraves.com
