Come along and join our campaign.
AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT THE TOURISTS SEE
We want a long term solution to this environmental debacle.We love Galway and we know that this sentiment is shared by all who live and visit here. We believe that good water quality is a fundamental human right and that at the moment Galway's water quality is falling far short of international requirements. We see a solution to this crisis. We feel the best way to achieve this solution is to set up an independent group of specialists to oversee the clean up of the Corrib which is the source of the water problems in Galway. If anyone is interested in being part of this group, please contact us.
We want the city officials to face the public for a forum on this issue. We have written to them and the HSE and EPA to request this. We will keep you posted if we hear anything back from them.We have had some response - see below
Mr. Joe Mcgrath refuses to meet the Galway Public and denies his Staff the right to do so either

Show the powers that be we will not stand for this disgraceful situation. Lets collectively clean up the water in Galway by showing some people power
Here we are in the furthest western point of Europe on an island, rains a lot, no big petrochemical industries etc and yet we can't drink our water! It’s not just the council officials and dept. of environment to blame; it's the complacency of the people of Galway! We all need to get off our a****s and do something about this. The powers that be have to be pushed into action. 90,000 people in Galway cannot drink the water, cannot brush their teeth in it, are unsure if they can shower or wash their dishes in it; 90,000 people are uninformed about this and are becoming increasingly worried about infection; 90,000 people will not go away!!!!!
