Menlo Monument, Galway City

Menlo is a small village, on the shores of Lough Corrib  upstream from the city. This particular monument was built to commemorate a visit by King James II, around 1690.
It is believed that his army set up camp in Menlo and stayed for a number of months, while awaiting more favourable weather conditions. The road is known as Monument Road.
