Public toilets at Rinville Park, Oranmore, must be opened at weekends to facilitate the large number of visitors during this time, according to Independent county councillor. Jim Cuddy.
Rinville Park is jointly owned by Galway city and county councils and the toilets are open during week days. However, during weekends from the end of October to the following Easter, the toilets are locked.
However, Cllr Cuddy points out that even during winter and spring, weekends is when the park is most visited by the public, including during the weekly Parkrun which takes place on Saturday mornings and has an average of 80 to 100 participants.
Cllr Cuddy has contacted officials in the Galway County Council asking for funding and manpower to be provided to allow the toilets be open during weekends.
