Spanish Arch

The Spanish Arch (Irish: An Póirse) and the Caoċ Arch (Irish: An Póirse Caoċ), are two remaining arches on the Ceann an Bhalla ("Front Wall"). The two arches were part of the extension of the city wall from Martin's Tower to the bank of the River Corrib, as a measure to protect the city's quays, which were in the area once known as the Fish Market (now Spanish Parade). It was constructed during the mayoralty of Wylliam Martin in 1584.
