... We saw the 16th century Spanish Arch, originally a bastion added to the town walls to protect merchant ships from looting. It was called Spanish Arch because the Spanish merchant galleons used to dock there.

We visited Galway Cathedral, located on Nun's Island, on the west bank of the River Corrib. It was built between 1958 and 1965 on the site of the former city jail - so a very new Cathedral! Robert didn't like it - too new and ...
