Funding to keep public areas clean

Funding of €105,000 towards the clean-up of public areas in Galway city has been allocated to City Hall by the Department of the Environment.

The money is part of a €3 million ‘Public Area Enhancement Scheme’ announced by the department this week. The funds can be spent on tidying up walking routes, town parks, derelict buildings, and graveyards, and can be delivered in conjunction with local groups such as Tidy Towns committees

Labour city councillor and chair of the Galway City Tidy Towns, Niall McNelis, has welcomed the funding, saying it will “give the local community a chance to show its best face for the coming tourist season”.
