Please find a list of Roundabouts / Round-about (s) which are in

Castlegar, County Galway, Ireland.

Presumably, it was Galway City Council who agreed and implemented the naming convention for the cities roundabouts. So, four out of our five are named after the Galway Tribes.

Some data is more comparative than accurate.

Update; 2012 - The Lynch, Morris, and Font, have been transformed from Roundabouts to Lighted Junctions.
