At Monday's Galway City Council meeting director of services Brian Barrett responded to queries from elected members.

Cllr Eddie Hoare asked what the council's position was in relation to holding outdoor events when restrictions ease further. Cllr Owen Hanley stated that the nightlife economy remains high risk, while also urging the council to think about attracting young people to the city.

Galway City Council director of services Brian Barrett said: "We will be looking to reignite and restart when appropriate. We want to support the local and creative sector to reinvigorate the city. It is our intention to underpin that with a programme this summer."
