Fr. Browne's GalwayFr E.E. O’Donnell SJ has just launched a new collection of photographs by Fr Frank Browne, called Fr Browne’s Galway. The photos are candid snapshots of everyday life in Galway in the mid-20th century.

Father Browne’s Galway is the title of the latest set of Fr Browne’s photographs to be edited by Fr E.E. O’Donnell, curator of the 42,000 photographs in the collection. This is the nineteenth book of Fr Browne’s photographs to be published, and the third to be published by Currach Press. The book was launched in the Kenny Gallery, Galway, on November 17. In his Foreword, Tom Kenny, director of the Kenny Gallery, says that Fr Browne’s photos are “not contrived, but true and candid visions of Galway that mirror the mindset of the day”.
