county galway, ireland 10. 2011

County Galway (Contae na Gaillimhe) is located in the Border Region and is also part of the province of Connacht.
The first inhabitants in the Galway area arrived over 7000 years ago. Shell middens tell us about the existence of people as early as 5000 BC.
The county originally comprised several kingdoms and territories which predate the formation of the county which came into official existence c. 1569.
