€550,000 boost for cycle facilities in the city

Thu, Jan 29, 2015

Some €550,000 of a €2.2 million Government grant for transport improvement projects in Galway will go towards developing cycleways in the city and Salthill, and other cycling infrastructure.

The grant, which will be distributed between 14 different projects - some new, others ongoing - was announced yesterday morning by the Minister for Transport, Paschal Donohoe. As well as money for cycling facilities, there will also be grants for a transport plan for the city centre, pedestrian infrastructure, and work in the Tuam Road area.

The funding has been welcomed by Fine Gael senator, Hildegarde Naughton. “This is good news for commuters in Galway,” she said. “Galway city’s narrow streets and footpaths lead to congestion. This funding of sustainable transport is vital to developing our tourist industry and in supporting business in Galway.”

Where there’s muck, there’s money — the digging continues

Paddy has a digger. And his father had a digger before him. His grandfather had a digger too. The great-grandfather didn't have a digger cos it hadn't been invented but he told everyone who knew him that he'd have had a digger if the man who made the diggers had been born before him and not 50 years after.
