These black iron cannons were brought back to Galway from the Crimean War(1854-56) and were presented to the Connaught Rangers in recognition of their military achievements during the war. The Rangers were involved in the Alma Valley battles in 1854, during which campaign they captured the Crimean town of Burlyuk. These majestic pieces of armoury stand silent now in Eyre Square.
