Wrong thread - that's the GCOB.

AFAIK they've rehoused the bats that were the major possible ecological issue with this scheme, so funding appears to be the only issue here (latest update discussed a few weeks back).

If you want to keep tabs on this project (apart from the national papers) keep an eye on www.galwaynews.ie & http://www.tuamherald.ie/

Far too late for those people to get in - this scheme has planning permission.

Never heard about this. If true its great news.

Edit: I cant find it anywhere online. So it would be good to give a source for this.

Need a verified source for this please. No point in raising our expectations with a baseless rumour! Would be savage news if it's true........

I'd be very surprised if this was true that none of the Galway papers have had it. It would be front page news (and make a bit of a stink at the national level too that the money isn't being spent on MN/DU).

If they can't raise the funds to do it they should be kicked off both NX and this project, poste haste.


The tender for this was announced in September of last year, so it raises a question on the time allowed by tenders to take up a contract.

Does anybody know if there's a limit on how long between the granting of a preferred tender and when a contract has to be signed?
