ClickNetherfield showcases protect ancient and mediaeval artefacts


ClickNetherfield have recently completed design and installation of thirteen high quality showcases at the Galway City Museum.  The cases will be used to display valuable and delicate artefacts relating to prehistoric and medieval Galway, which are coming on loan from the National Museum of Ireland.

Among the objects earmarked for these showcases are prehistoric flint, axeheads, and swords excavated from the River Corrib in the early 1980s, and mediaeval wine bottles, glass, and other objects excavated in the city centre in the 1980s and 1990s.

The showcases conform to stringent standards for the storage and presentation of artefacts. They are securely alarmed and the climate within the case can be controlled to suit the object being stored.  The cases were purchased with the help of a grant received from the Department of Arts.

City Manager, Joe O’Neill has welcomed the arrival of the cases as “yet another major step in the museum’s redevelopment programme”.
