Hidden Galway introduces the reader to a totally new history of Galway. There are stories of disasters, such as the KLM flight which brought Galway to a standstill for over a week in 1958, the Christmas morning tragedy of 1842, when thirty-seven people lost their lives while attending mass, and the story of William from Galway, the man who sailed with Christopher Columbus in 1492 on his voyage of discovery. Graphic accounts of execution and murder from the City of the Tribes are told, such as the infamous Bodkin Murders, where eleven people were brutally slain in a house of horrors in one night. Included are famous and infamous bandits, highwaymen, scientists, smugglers, and love stories that introduce us to the weird, wonderful, and often downright strange customs and pastimes of the people of Galway.
