Padraig O'Conaire (1882 - 1928) was a famous Irish short story writer. In the early years of the 20th century he travelled the roads of County Galway with his donkey and cart writing and story telling. This statue in his honour was carved by Albert G. Power and was unveiled by Eamonn De Valera at Eyre Square on Easter Sunday in 1935. Since then the statue as survived Galway weather and the occasional vandal attack until the recent renovation of Eyre Square. The statue is now an exhibit at the new Galway Museum.
