The Fountain At Eyre Square, Galway, Republic of Ireland
Ireland

The fountain at Eyre Square is a fine example of one of the more modern additions to Galway's artistic and architectural heritage. It was built in 1984 and it manages to embrace Galways' traditions in a contemporary fashion. The fountain centrepiece consists of a copper-coloured representation of the sails of the Galway Hooker. This was a traditional fishing boat, unique to Galway, which has gained fame because of its widespread use in times past, its importance to the port of Galway , and its unusual and attractive appearance. It has long been used as a symbol for the county of Galway and it appears in the coat of arms, emphasising the importance of the maritime influence on the community. It marks the pivotal point in the city and is well worth seeing.
