Galway Bay fm newsroom – Galway scientists have found glacial evidence for abrupt climate change.
Results from a major study by NUI Galway and University of Maine have shed light on the impact of climate change in Britain, Ireland and maritime Europe.
The research has raised fresh concerns over the future weakening of warm ocean currents in the North Atlantic – which could lead to a highly seasonal climate.
The evidence used in the study consists of shell remains dating back to the ‘Younger Dyras’ climate change episode, which happened around 12,000 years ago.

Call for county council to have 24/7 contract to service traffic lights
Galway Bay fm newsroom – There are calls for Galway County Council to have a 24/7 contract to service traffic lights.
Local Councillor Jim Cuddy is making the call after lights at Carnmore Cross were out of order from Friday last to Monday afternoon.
The Athenry/Oranmore councillor claims the temporary flashing lights put in place were “totally inadequate” in terms of road safety.
Councillor Cuddy says having no access to service on weekends is not good enough.
