William Henry delves into the rich tapestry of Galway's past to reveal a totally new history of the city and county, exploring the stories of people and events that have been forgotten or were never well known. There are accounts of disasters, such as the KLM plane crash which brought Galway to a standstill for over a week in 1958; chilling tales of execution and murder, such as the infamous Bodkin Murders when eleven people were brutally slain in one night in a house of horrors near Tuam; and love stories, including the affair between Wolfe Tone and the married Elizabeth Martin. Bandits, highwaymen and smugglers are part of this hidden history, as are scientists and men and women of vision. Hidden Galway brings the colourful history of Galway to life in a book that has something for everyone.
