History Galway has a complex history which goes back around 800 years. The city was the only medieval city in the province of Connacht. Medieval Galway was surrounded by an enclosing wall with towers and gates which protected citizens from attack. The gates controlled access to the town, and at night a curfew bell would ring to signal to the citizens to return within the walls, after which the gates were locked. Entry to the town was

limited, and the threat of fire and damage to the walls was ever present. During the Middle Ages, Galway was ruled by fourteen merchant families known as the Tribes of Galway. Some of these family names include; Athy, Blake, Browne, D'Arcy, Deane, Joyce, Lynch, Martin, Morris and Skerritt. A display of the fourteen tribal flags representing these families can be seen at the top of Eyre Square, in the City Centre.
