20 protestors gather near Ballinfoile Park against plans to change Kirwan roundabout

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Around 20 people have gathered near Ballinfoile Park this morning protesting over the proposed redevelopment of the Kirwan Roundabout.
The 1.2 million euro project will convert the roundabout into a four-arm traffic light junction and divert the Coolagh road onto the N84 Headford road to create a three-arm junction.
The Kirwan Action Group claims this will increase traffic through Menlo, Tirellan, and Ballinfoile.
The protest at Ballindooley, Ballinfoile Park and Tirellan Heights runs until 9.30 this morning.
