Shantalla, GalwayWhen Daniel O’Connell campaigned for Catholic emancipation and repeal of the Act of Union, he addressed a “Monster Rally” in Shantalla, Galway, in 1843. 170 years later, this resourceful community staged a re-enactment of the rally, which was a huge success and could form the basis for future events relating to the great man.

A well organised, resourceful community that have every right to be proud of what they have achieved.
