Overview

This doorway was rescued from an old mansion in Lower Abbeygate Street in 1905 and re-erected in Eyre Square. The carvings include two 17th century coats of arms, one commemorating the Browne family and the other commemorating the Lynch family. Both of these are distinguished Galway names. Martin Browne married a woman named Marie Lynch; the coat of arms (or "marriage-stones") which appear here date back to 1627 and represent their union.
