Comerford House
Comerford House
House on Fish Market built around 1800, adjacent to the Spanish Arch. The house was originally owned by the Comerford family and from 1948 to 1954 was home to the sculptor Clare Sheridan, the cousin of Sir Winston Churchill. It was later donated to Galway Corporation and from 1976 to 2004 it housed Galway City Museum, before the museum moved to a new building seen in the background of this photo. Included in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage - see LinkExternal link.

The mural by Joe Caslin was painted in July 2014 to mark the start of the Galway 26th Film Fleadh and is one of a series entitled "Our Nation's Sons" on buildings around Ireland. This follows a similar programme by him in 2012 in Edinburgh.
