Remnants of Medieval Galway

Remnants of a bygone era seen on the streets of Galway. Many medieval ruins were erased in the 20th century, but many fragments still survive. Above: a medieval doorway. Below: one of the marriage stones, which formed part of the fireplace among the ruling 'tribes'. At some stage they were stuck into the walls of some buildings. In this case,  Subway at the bottom of Shop Street.

Several medieval churches around the country have mermaids.This example was seen on the front of St Nicks.
