Mayor Conneely this week paid tribute to the generousity of the people of Galway who contributed €3,025 to the Disaster Fund over the two-day event. The mayor thanked the chief executive officer of the City and County Enterprise Board, Breda Foxe, for allowing the Philippines community based in Galway to take up the collection at the trade fair.
