I wish a very happy and peaceful Christmas to everyone, and a prosperous new year. Take care of yourselves and each other. Be mindful of but not afraid of the problems we face and help each other through them.
Below a copy of the memo prepared by Galway City Council to provide an update on the City Council’s progress on the motion on putting a cycleway along the PROM in Salthill.
The motion passed by councillors, apparently without debate was:
“That Galway City Council shall urgently seek to create a two-way segregated cycle track on a temporary basis along the coastal side of Salthill promenade, specifically the R336 from the junction with Grattan Road up to the junction of the Prom/Blackrock Tower and a one way cycle track from the latter junction up to where the R336 meets with the R337, and shall immediately apply for COVID 19 funding or any available alternative source of funding to facilitate this”.
Possible repercussions of this could potentially be a one way traffic system for motor vehicles along the Prom, rerouted traffic through other areas, longer bus and other motor journeys and longer journey times, increased emissions due to driving longer routes, more congestion on alternative routes, loss of parking spaces and taxi rank spaces.

This came up in my Facebook feed. I thought it such a nice way for a new outfit to do business and am happy to share it here. The text read as follows:
“This year so far has been absolutely amazing for us, having started in April with nothing more than my laptop and kitchen table to having our busiest month helping 8 people find new homes in November, now with Danny on the team I can’t wait to see what 2022 has in store.
We couldn’t achieve any of this without all the homeowners and families that have put their trust in us to help them and now we want to give back.
For every new listing we take on in December we will donate €250 from our fee to the Galway hospice in the name of the homeowner. The Galway Hospice has been close to both our hearts having helped family members through some of the toughest times and hopefully, we can help them out in our own small way this Christmas.
We have set really big goals in how much we want to donate and would really appreciate it if you could share this as far and wide as you can.”
A new crop of talented musicians will take to the stage for the new series of Glór Tíre with the first shows airing on TG4 in January 2022. New contestants will be mentored this year by some of the top names in Country music.
