Browne's Doorway in Eyre Square
Collection:Cardall
Description:A photograph of an old doorway, known as Browne's Doorway which served as an entrance to the park in the middle of Eyre Square. (Eyre Square is in Galway city.) There are railings around the square. There is a plaque on the right of the door, and a seat on the left. There are two people sitting on the seat, one of whom is a man wearing a hat. There are five other men in the photograph, and one woman. The doorway was originally the entrance to the family home of the Browne family. This house was on Lower Abbeygate Street. The doorway was moved, in 1905, from there to Eyre Square. There is a bay window over the door. There are trees growing in the park, and the statue of Padraic O'Conaire can be seen just beyond the railings. The Railway Hotel can be seen in the background.
