Public deserves to see full Galway 2020 accounts, says Hanley

Mon, May 10, 2021

Social Democrats’ Galway City East councillor, Owen Hanley.

It is “absolutely vital” that the full accounts of Galway 2020 are made open so the people can see just “how public money was spent”.

This is the view of Social Democrats’ Galway City East councillor, Owen Hanley, who was speaking following Galway officially ending its term as European Capital of Culture.

"There are serious answers needed to address the very genuine concerns amongst artists, businesses and the general public,” he said. "There's no doubt Galway 2020 never had a real chance to be what it could have been given the pandemic. However, the allocation of huge amounts of taxpayers money requires a public airing of the accounts."
