Publisher: Archive CD Books Ireland

This book is considered to be the definitive history of Galway. James Hardiman, an active member of the Royal Irish Academy and sub-commissioner of Public Records at Dublin Castle published it in 1820. As a result the book contains much information now lost as a consequence of the 1922 fire at the Public Record Office. The book is organised into four sections, with additional appendices and other information at the end. These are:

  • History of Galway from earliest times to the present in seven chapters. This is the main bulk of the book and includes copious transcripts of original sources.
  • The Corporation of Galway. This section includes lists of all city officials and MPs from earliest times and copies of the charters, etc.
  • Ecclesiastical History of Galway.
  • Galway in 1820. Details of all official, public and private institutions, governance, education, economic information, etc.
  • The book also contains many fine illustrations of the city, as well as maps, including a large-scale map of the city in 1651.

A wealth of information and a snapshot in time.
