The Londis /Centra is 2 mins walk from Wellpark + Duggans up road also.. Mervue stores and Joyces very close also!
Wellpark Very busy already, What would up to 100 extra cars traffic do ????:eek: Has this been considered Properly?? I guess GCC could be an overspill carpark

I'd count them more as convenience stores, but that's just my own classification :pac:
Ya the car park there seems to always be busy these days. It's weird because I seem to remember it usually being quiet a few years ago when more of the units were actually open.

Definitely will be an issue traffic wise
I think everyone over 16 has a car in Galway these days, Not so long since the mid 90s when the entire student population in UCG had 5 cars between them all...:D

Any movement on this? The last news was in August that planning permission was granted. Do we have an ETA?

To echo comments above, I don't think it's a suitable site for a large supermarket. The carpark is pretty much at capacity already.
It is going to be under huge pressure adding the supermarket on to it.
I take the point that there are lots of houses around there and may be mainly pedestrian traffic. But still, adding 200/250 (guesstimate) extra cars per day to that retail park will be chaotic.
Is it possible that people are parking in that car park and going elsewhere i.e. business park on Moneenageisha Hill or getting the bus into town?
