Support group for adult survivors of child sexual abuse to open in Castlebar

Mayo based charity SHARE, which provides support to adults who were sexually abused during childhood, is getting ready to open a support group in Castlebar at the end of September. The group, which started out in Ballina, is moving to a more central location in Castlebar.

Nick Groom who set up SHARE, explained that following the work done by the group in Ballina, a move to a more central location such as Castlebar would provide the opportunity for people from a wider area to avail of the support on offer.

“Since we started SHARE 18 months ago we have seen a steady growth in the number of people contacting us,” he said. “We have also noticed that people are contacting us not just from this part of Mayo, but from Sligo, Galway, and Roscommon too, as well as nationally. Obviously we can only provide support for those who are able to travel to the meetings.”

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.
