Spanish Arch and other city sites closing over social distancing issues

A number of public amenities and sites in Galway city are being closed off once again due to recent social distancing problems.

Galway City Council has closed off the Spanish Arch and Claddagh Basin, where social distancing issues cropped up as large numbers of people gathered in the good weather.

Blackrock Diving Tower and the road at the back of the golf course has also been closed.

Parking at Silverstrand and Ballyloughane beach is also being closed off again.

This is after the city had begun cautiously reopening amenities as of May 18 when the country entered Phase 1 of coming out of lockdown.

However there is some good news, as Galway Market will be going ahead as planned tomorrow with new safety measures in place.

These include spreading food traders out between the regular location in front of the church, and the car park of St. Patrick’s school across the street.

A one way traffic system is also being implemented to help social distancing.
