Galway City

A city known throughout the world for the sun setting on its bay. The Spanish Arch and Parade are named for the merchants who came here long ago; the Claddagh, said to be the oldest fishing village in Ireland and the spot where the Claddagh ring originated.

As tradition has it, Christopher Columbus worshipped here at the Collegiate Church of St. Nicholas before setting out on his voyage of discovery.
