Gardai warn against bogus callers
Gardai would like to make people aware that there have been several incidents recently of a person calling to houses impersonating a member of An Garda Siochana.
This person has showed the householder what appears to be a garda ID card.
Gardai are asking members of the public to be more vigiliant of whom they let into their house and if they are in any doubt to contact their local station prior to letting a person into their home.
McGrath to address public meeting on Brexit
Fianna Fáil spokesperson on finance Michael McGrath will give a keynote address at a public meeting entitled ‘Brexit and its consequences for Galway’.
The meeting is being organised by Fianna Fáil councillor Peter Keane and will take place in the Harbour Hotel tonight at 7pm.
Deputy McGrath said, “Brexit is the greatest economic challenge facing this country in decades, and all efforts must be made to ensure that Ireland is protected from any negative fallout. The UK Government’s decision to opt for a hard Brexit is particularly worrying in terms of our economic and social relationship with Britain.
“Galway’s status as a major tourist hub could be threatened in the aftermath of Britain’s decision to leave the EU. Over the past few months we saw the value of sterling plummet, making it more expensive for British people to take trips here, which is particularly damaging for the local economy in Galway.
