Angry councillors demands answers over felling of Salthill Park trees

Thu, Jul 21, 2016

Cllr Donal Lyons.

The felling of mature trees in Salthill Park is "an outrageous act of vandalism”, which has led to a Garda investigation, and a demand from councillors for answers from City Hall.

City councillor Donal Lyons has condemned the cutting down of the trees and has submitted a list of questions to City Hall to determine what happened and why. "This is a matter of extreme importance," said Cllr Lyons. "The felling of the trees in public parkland has to be condemned."

The trees were cut down last Sunday, prompting opposition and condemnation from residents of the Dalysfort Road area. However, residents were given an impression that the Galway City Council authorised the work. Gardaí from Salthill Garda Station were also assured permission had been granted, after they were called to the park to examine what was going on.
