Water charges protest to be held in city centre

Galway city councillors will receive ‘messages in a bottle’ over the controversial water charges, as part of a major demonstration in the city against the unpopular new tax.

There will be a protest against the water charges and water privatisation takes place on Wednesday October 1 - the day that the charges begin - starting at the fountain in Eyre Square at 5pm.

Attendees are asked to bring along empty water bottles and place messages inside them stating their reasons for opposing the Government’s domestic water policy. These will be delivered to local politicians.

OVER 40% INCREASE IN NUMBER OF PROPERTIES SOLD IN COUNTY GALWAY

According to the property price register at the end of August, the number of property sales for both Galway city and county is showing a dramatic increase year on year. The register gives the exact selling price of properties and so is the most accurate record of actual sales that have taken place. Some property reports use asking prices as their source, others use prices which properties were 'for sale' at; neither of these give accurate information which can be relied on. As the property price register is only completed when sales are finalised, it could be argued that it lags real time selling prices by a few months. However, it is still the only definitive register for actual property sales.
