The funeral of Fr Peter Dooley, Parish Priest of the united parishes of St Patrick’s and the Abbey from 1869 to his death in 1911. The funeral is pictured passing down the western side of Eyre Square. Born at Culliagh near Headford in 1836, Fr Dooley was a man of the people. He was instrumental in helping to found the Galway Woollen Mills in Newtownsmyth, as well as a hosiery factory in Francis Street, both giving much-needed employment to the area. He built the Temperance Hall in Lombard Street, and provided much social housing in the Woodquay and Sickeen areas of the city without any government aid.
