Galway Bay fm newsroom – Galway East TD Sean Canney has told the Dáil that local farmers are living in fear over the future of their livelihoods and the sector.

The long awaited project, which also includes a women and children’s development, was debated at a meeting of the Regional Health Forum West where councillorDeclan McDonnell asked if a previously promised date was now realistic.
