A VIP fanfare will mark the launch of the brand new Monopoly board for County Galway, on October 2nd—but which county or city landmark will be revealed as The Mayfair of Galway?

Galway Bay, Galway Races and Kylemore Abbey are considered to be the three in the running to land the top coveted Monopoly square.

The full-line up of identities of the Monopoly Galway site owners will be revealed on October 2nd. That’s nine sets—eight multi-coloured ones and a travel set comprising of four travel locations replacing the four train stations from the Monopoly original.

The Monopoly makers are this year celebrating the 80th anniversary—and the Galway board forms part of that celebration.

Polling to name the Galway squares has seen votes from as far as the US—with, for some reason, others coming in from Italy.

Winning Moves are the makers of this unique and official board under official license from Monopoly owners Hasbro. They predict overseas sales, particularly from the US, will be enormous.

The new board will be available at all good toy and book stores across County Galway from October 2nd, including at Easons and Smyths. The board will also be widely available online, including Amazon.
