About this map and Galway's roundabouts

Galway city started naming roundabouts (rotaries) after the Tribes of Galway early in the 21st century. These names are commonly used in directions to places in the city.

However in 2011, the city started a programme to replace some roundabouts with signal-controlled junctions and an intelligent lights control system, and Google maps road-names are being updated to reflect this.

This map documents the roundabout names as they were in 2011, to help make sense of existing "how to get to" directions.
