Galway City Council says it’s not appropriate to comment on what it will do in relation to Occupy Galway’s plans to return to Eyre square this week.

Occupy Galway plan to meet this Thursday in Eyre Square for music and workshops marking the same day last year when the camp was dismantled by Gardaí and the City Council.
