Commemorative Cards launched at Westside Arts Festival

A set of commemorative postcards has just been published by Galway City Council and was launched today at Westside Arts Festival. Dr Jim Higgins, Heritage Officer with Galway City Council, gave a talk on Galway's role in the 1916 Rising and the set of commemorative postcards was launched by James Coyne, Chairman of Westside Arts Festival.

Each of the eight postcards in the set shows one or more images from the period and snippets from minutes taken at the meetings of Galway Urban District Council, as it was known then. There is an explanatory note on the back of each card and the set comes with a booklet containing excerpts from some of the resolutions taken by the Council during the period.
