Green and red pact to run Galway for next five years

Thu, Jun 13, 2024

First time councillors Josie Forde (FF) in green, with Helen Ogbu (Lab) in red, are set to be members of a FF-Lab-SF-Ind coalition in the Galway City Council

All signs point to a Fianna Fáil-Labour-Sinn Féin coalition with support from Independent councillors to run the Galway City Council for the next five years.

A combination of four Fianna Fáilers with three Labour councillors, one Sinn Féin representative and – it is understood – two non-party councillors, will create a 10-member bloc to run the 18-seat local authority.

Very few members of the new 2024-2029 Galway City Council wished to comment on the record as negotiations are at a delicate stage regarding which councillors will take up various positions, including mayor, deputy mayor and committee chairmanships. These positions come with a financial allowance.
