Memorialisation and Galway in the Revolutionary Period This month's post takes the form of a slide show, outlining the history of the Volunteer monument at Castlegar, on the northern edge of Galway City. It was created as a contribution to " History, memorialisation and the struggle for Irish independence in Galway ’. This is the theme of the Galway City Museum’s 2021 Culture Night, on Friday 17 September. It is held in conjunction with the History Department at NUI Galway and Galway City Council. All talks will be filmed, and will form part of a web resource on memory and memorialisation in Galway. The Castlegar Monument presentation is available on the Library's YouTube channel at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNxCvFS8Nts
