Nothing Happened Here Monument
Situated behind the Connemara Giant, near Joyce's Craft Shop in County Galway, midway between Galway City and Clifden, this marker is filled with Irish wit. The marker proclaims, ” On this site in 1897 nothing happened.”


  1. Had some wonderful times in that area. Had a house in Oughterard – not far from Galway. Wonderful scenery, wonderful people, friendly, helpful, always ready for some craic. So badly wish I had never sold it – it was overlooking Lough Corrib (wonderful fishing) and I doubt I’ll ever find the likes of it again.

      Thanks for your comment Jessica! Oughterard and its surrounds are lovely. I can’t imagine the beauty of living there. 🙂
