Galway City Council has given the go-ahead for a major regeneration project which will transform parts of the city centre.

Developed by Gerry Barrett, Augustine Hill will include 229 apartments, a 130-bed hotel, a six-screen cinema, restaurants, retail and a craft food market.

These will be located on 11 new and fully-pedestrianised streets and four large public spaces on lands next to Ceannt Station.
