County Council decision to refuse Oranmore apartments appealed to An Bord Pleanala

Galway Bay fm newsroom – The county council’s decision to refuse permission for an eight-apartment block in Oranmore has been appealed to An Bord Pleanala.
The application led by Shane Curley was turned down due to the limited size of the site and a lack of satisfactory onsite car parking.
The project at the site of The Elmtree clinic would see the demolition of an existing single storey office building and the construction of eight apartments.
In the appeal, the applicant argues the decision to refuse permission had little or no regard to national planning policy governing higher density residential and apartment development.

Galway Bay fm newsroom – A 12-hour status yellow rainfall warning has been issued for Galway and 14 other counties.

Met Eireann says up to 25 millimetres of rain could fall between Sunday night and Monday morning.

The national forecaster says the rain is likely to be preceded by a period of snow which will turn to rain later in the night.

Due to the already saturated ground and elevated river levels, Met Éireann is predicting localised surface and river flooding will occur.

The status yellow rain warning will come into effect tomorrow night at 8 o’clock and remain in place until 8 o’clock on Monday morning.

The alert also affects the rest of Connacht and counties Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Longford, Louth, Offally, Westmeath, Meath, Clare and Tipperary.

Many areas along the River Shannon are on alert, with much farmland around Carrick-on-Shannon and Athlone already under water.

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Irish Water has issued a notice to its customers in the Wellpark area that interruptions are expected to the water supply there throughout today.

It’s due to additional repairs being carried out today after a section of road outside Galway Community College at Moneenageisha gave way yesterday afternoon.

Shortly before lunchtime, authorities were forced to close the outbound lane of the Wellpark Road next to the Moneenageisha traffic lights after a hole appeared in the road.

The structural failure was linked to a faulty watermain identified on the Dublin Road on Thursday.

Irish Water and Galway City Council are now carrying out additional repairs on the road which are expected to be complete late this evening.

The outbound lane to Moneenageisha on the Monivea Road is closed as a result, as well as the right turn lane from Monivea Road towards Cemetery Cross.

Interruptions to the water supply are also expected to occur until the works are complete.
