Chain gang — City mayors declare support for Galway 2020

Thu, Jan 17, 2019

The surviving mayors of Galway city have this week stated their committment to becoming ambassadors for the embattled Galway 2020 project. With less than 50 weeks until the city becomes the official European Capital of Culture, the group of mayors have promised to do all they can to ensure that the project is a resounding success.

There is speculation that the meetings of the former mayors will become a regular event and that they will be asked to lend their political, cultural, and personal experience to benefit the city of which they were all first citizen.

This week, the current Mayor of the city, Labour councillor Niall McNelis met his 17 previous holders of the office, and together they issued a formal ‘Declaration of Support’ to “declare our individual and collective support" to Galway 2020.
