South Park must not be turned into giant car park - Connolly

South Park must not be turned into a 200 space car park to accommodate Pearse Stadium and City Hall has a duty to reject any such application by the GAA.

This is the view of Independent city councillor Catherine Connolly and her remarks follow the GAA's seeking of planning permission from the Galway City Council to erect five floodlight columns with associated floodlights in Pearse Stadium, Salthill.

Three of the proposed columns will be 30.48m high and two will be 36.6m. The floodlights on each column will number between 33 and 40 lighting fixtures. The floodlights will be fitted to 4.5m radius support frames on each column.

Clarinbridge goes Rustic

In the pretty town of Clarinbridge, a picturesque pub, Sherry's Bar, provides a surprising venue for Rustic Grub. Recently opened in a village already well supplied with good cafes and tea-rooms, it has hit the ground running — which says a lot about chef Maria McNeela and the ethos she has brought with her. There are very few people who could match the passion and respect that she has for food, and the menu reflects this in a variety of ways. She has found a space to showcase the best that the west has to offer and cooks in the Irish tradition — unrestrained, imaginative, and dedicated to pleasure — maternalism at its finest.
