Paul Dodd, was Mayor of Galway, from 1656 to 1657. Dodd was sworn into office in September 1656, having been a sheriff under the previous mayor, Humphrey Hurd. He seized a house belonging to John Bodkin, possibly the same man who was Mayor 1639-40, and leased other property he had confiscated from the townspeople. According to William Henry, the new rulers of Galway were crude, lower-class English, who "After burning the costly timberwork in one house, they simply moved into the next house leaving them with a poisoning stench of excrement and filth, that it was almost impossible to enter." His descendants still live in the town.
