Across Europe, light rail systems have been rolled out across cities of similar size and population to Galway, and are working successfully, meaning there is no longer any reason to oppose such a public transport system being constructed here.
The housing crisis, Ireland's natural resources, economics, and the European Union will be discussed in Galway this weekend at a series of talks organised by The Peadar O'Donnell Socialist Republican Forum.
With some 5,000 households - an estimated total of 15,000 people - on the housing waiting list in Galway, an 11 acre site at Sandy Road should be used to provide residential development and council housing.
The homeless crisis in Galway is now "out of control" as rents spiral upwards and increasing numbers seek emergency accommodation or sleep on the streets, a situation that will "continue to escalate with detrimental consequences" unless immediate action is taken.
Insider knows Ireland's population is to rise by one million over the next 20 years. This will see Galway's population grow to beyond 100,000 between now and 2020.
