Galway City Museum scanning sessions

Galway City Museum scanning sessions

Our first scanning event organised with our touring partners at Galway City Museum took place on Saturday 18th October. Many thanks to Brendan and the superb staff at the museum for facilitating the event.  This well informed group are active in local history and took part in a lively discussion and projection event led by researcher/archivist Maeve O’Neill.  We look forward to returning in a few week for a projection event which will be projected onto the front window of the beautiful facade of the museum www.galwaycitymuseum.ie
