Galway TD hopeful Athenry and Portumna Castles will host civil ceremonies

Galway Bay fm newsroom – A Galway East TD is hopeful that civil ceremonies could soon be performed at Athenry and Portumna Castles.
Deputy Ciaran Cannon says similar sites nationwide, such as Kilkenny Castle and The Ceide Fields Visitor Centre in Co. Mayo, are hugely popular venues.
He’s now working with OPW Minister Kevin Boxer Moran to have both Athenry and Portumna Castle included in the list of approved venues for civil ceremonies.
Deputy Cannon says East Galway is currently lacking in options and locals have a huge affinity with both areas and their rich heritage
