Social distancing prompts closure of beach parking and Lough Rusheen park

Galway City Council has added to the number of public amenities that have been closed in order to comply with social distancing guidelines.

The City Council has this weekend closed Lough Rusheen Park, as well as all parking spaces at Ballyloughane Beach, for social distancing purposes.

This comes not long after the council closed off all parking along the Promenade in Salthill.

Blackrock diving area and the walkway to the rear of the golf course were also closed after gardaí expressed concern about difficulties with social distancing.

Salthill Park is also closed, and fencing has been erected at all entrances to discourage people from entering.

“Please do not drive to these popular amenities around the city, over the weekend,” the city council said on facebook.

Stringent restrictions on public movement are in place during the Covid-19 crisis, with people only supposed to leave their homes for limited reasons.

These include essential journeys such as buying food, collecting medication, or to care for a person who cannot leave their home, as well as taking exercise within 2km of where you live.
