Mayor describes school warden appointment as ‘bureaucracy gone mad’

City Hall having to write to the Minister for Finance for permission to appoint a school warden is “bureaucracy gone mad” according to the Mayor of Galway Pádraig Conneely.

At Monday’s city council meeting, Mayor Conneely was informed by the council’s director of services Ciarán Hayes that in order to appoint a school warden to St James’ National School in Bushypark, the Galway City Council had to write to the Minister of Finance Brian Lenihan jr for permission.

“This is bureaucracy gone mad,” said the Mayor. “The safety of children crossing the busy Galway-Clifden road is more important than bureaucratic financial constraints.”
