The matter has been raised by local area councillor Shane Donnellan at county council level.

Director of services Jim Cullen said there has been very close oversight on asset transfer to Irish Water throughout the county.

He added that after the lands were transferred, the plan changed to bring the supply from Tuam.
The Director stressed he has been given an assurance that the land in question will be transferred back by Irish water.
Councillor Donnellan said there had been some local concern over the site.

Galway Bay FM Newsroom – Over 7,000 Galway farmers will benefit from the proposed redistribution of the CAP scheme.

That’s according to the Irish Natura & Hill Farmers Association which is contesting the narrative that the current CAP proposals will undermine the income of Irish farmers.

The group argues over 72,000 farmers, including 7,413 Galway farmers, will benefit from a full flattening of payments.

This represents 60% of all farmers nationwide and 63% of farmers in county Galway.

The INHFA says the flattening would see all farmers paid a national average of €265 per hectare by 2026 – while in Galway annual payments would increase to €6.5 million.

Spokesperson for the INHFA Brendan Joyce says the current proposals will deliver for the vast majority of Irish and Galway farmers.
