Galway Market returning this weekend with new safety measures

After a somewhat rough return last week, Galway Market will be going ahead this Bank Holiday weekend with a range of new safety measures.

To allow for improved social distancing, the Galway Market will be spreading out further than its traditional home in front of St. Nicholas Church.

All hot food traders will be operating in the car park of St. Patrick’s school across the street, while cold food traders will be set up in front of the church.

A one way system through the market has also been set up, with a clear route marked on the ground starting from Shop Street.

Stewards will also be in place to ensure proper social distancing is abided by.

Last weekend saw Galway Market making a tentative return after being closed for weeks due to Covid-19 restrictions.

However things got off to a rough start on Saturday when it was closed early on the advice of gardaí after people failed to properly socially distance.

But trading resumed on Sunday and the day went off without incident.

The city council and market organisers have been working throughout the week on steps to ensure that the market can go ahead with endangering public safety.
