Finally, the former Oasis which has lain derelict for many years is to be demolished. So too is the adjoining former An Bearna shop. It stood next to the former Warrick Hotel which has already being demolished and planning permission has being granted for a nursing home on that site.
Hopefully the wrecking ball won’t stop there. There are further buildings adjacent to these in derelict condition for many years (decades). They certainly do not do anything positive for Salthill as they are.
These were lively spots in their day. Many of you will have (mostly) fond memories. The anthem was the Garth Brooks song – “Friends in low places”.
'Cause I've got friends in low places Where the whiskey drowns And the beer chases My blues away And I'll be okay I'm not big on social graces Think I'll slip on down to the oasis Oh, I've got friends in low places"
