GALWAY, IRELAND. Buffyverse Place.
City in the west of Ireland, the original home of Angel. It was in an alley near a tavern in Galway in 1753 that Darla seduced and sired Angelus ("Becoming," Part 1).
The Claddagh Ring, which Angel calls a "sign of devotion" of "my people" in "Surprise," originated in Galway [thanks to Janice Chan for this information].
