Hi chintz,

Cannot say for sure myself as it is a very different market in a way. Some Irish Whiskey Mirrors or whiskey-inalia can fetch some very high prices if they are old and original branded products. However I have never heard of O'Connell & Flynn as a Distillery or as a brand before or even Galway Bay distillery. This may have been made specially for a pub or just a spurious reproduction look mirror. Looks like a decent size so it should be worth something but what I could not say. Hopefully someone else may have any idea.

Could it have been a wedding present for an O'Connell/Flynn couple from Galway and Dublin?

I've seen it before on a few occasions during eBay searches. It could be a one of those whiskey names made up for the Irish pub markets but it seem to come up in google searches too.
I came across a metal sign for Devereux distillery on a German site recently. I've never seen one on an Irish site.
Another distillery was Andrew Jameson's one down here that you'd never see anything about.

I have done a quick scan of The Lost Distilleries of Ireland and could not find any mention either.
If I find any info i'll let you know.
