Galway Bay fm newsroom – A decision to grant approval to Irish Water to install new water reservoir infrastructure on Inis Meáin is being appealed.
Late last year, the county council granted planning permission for the provision of raw water storage tanks on the middle of the Aran Islands.
An appeal has now been lodged with An Bord Pleanála.
In an appeal against the grant of permission for some water reservoir infrastructure on Inis Meáin, the objector who is a resident of the island, states that she wants an oral hearing on the matter.
She says she wants the hearing to question Irish Water about its proposals for the water supply on the island including the need for the new tanks.
The local resident is not opposed to Irish Water’s plans for water infrastructure at one location but has issues in relation to a second location near her home.
A decision is due from An Bord Pleanala by April.

Galway Bay fm newsroom – The National Transport Authority has stated that private bus companies can operate on the Gort to Galway bus route.

Minister of State and Galway East TD Anne Rabbitte has received confirmation from the NTA that commercial bus operators can submit licence applications for the route at anytime.

It comes after Bus Éireann’s decision to cancel its evening service on the Galway to Cork Expressway 51 route – leaving passengers travelling to south Galway with no access to a public bus service after the last bus departs the city at 5:05pm.

The NTA has stated that potential applications will be considered based on the potential demand for the service with regards to the needs of consumers and any public services on or in the vicinity of the route.

Minister Rabbitte argues the decision by Bus Éireann has placed limitations on students, workers and general commuters travelling out of the city.

She is encouraging commercial bus operators to make an application and provide the vital service for commuters in the county.
