Galway is a place in love with sorrow.
Galway. Death. Sorrow. Connemara.

Plaster mask of a child of Lady Nairn taken after death as a memorial. In the 19th century when this mask was made many more babies and young children died in Britain than today. Many wealthy parents had these masks made on on the death of their children.
