    I hear the arts festival want to put up at permanent space for use outside of summer extravaganza, anyone have an idea of where this space is?

    GBFM says this about it 'The gallery is located at a building, owned by An Post, off William Street and at the back of Eglinton Street in the city'.

    Racking my brains at to where it is exactly.

    There is a small lane between Matt O'Flaherty chemist and Laszlo jewellers up there is the back of the post office yard.

    It's huge! Beside Premoli shoes. Can't get over how such a great big space has been used, can imagine more permanent exhibits, a market, gigs...owned by An post you say?

    A market... gigs.... a Zara.
    It definitely needs to be used now. As well as the fact that it would be so useful it's annoying that an asset that could be making the state money has been lying idle so long.

    Quite big but I thought there would be more than six or seven art works in it. Felt empty.

    Thank you for pointing out the correction, it should have been gallery like Valerie then.

    Could you close the tread now please?, there doesn't seem to be any more interest in it

    Festival gallery may become permanent home for the arts

    Arts Minister Josepha Madigan is to meet with Galway Arts Festival and Galway 2020 to discuss the provision of a long-awaited municipal art gallery in the city.

    The meeting, which will take place after this year’s Festival ends, is being arranged by Galway West Fine Gael TD Hildegarde Naughton.

    Deputy Naughton is proposing that a city centre space, owned by An Post – which was made available to the Festival as a temporary gallery for this year – be given over to Galway’s arts groups.

    An Post loaned the building – which is accessed from William Street – to the Festival in April. Until then, it looked like the county’s flagship arts event would be unable host its main visual arts show for 2019 because it had no space large enough.

    The lack of a municipal gallery has been a thorn in the side of the festival for more than 40 years, but its Artistic Director Paul Fahy is hopeful that an end may finally be in sight.

    She brought Minister Richard Bruton, who has responsibility for An Post, to see the facility last Friday. Minister Bruton and An Post CEO David McRedmond were met at the gallery by Paul Fahy and Festival CEO John Crumlish.

    “He was amazed at what we had done in ten weeks,†said Paul Fahy.

    Given over?

    Pretty sure An Post would be expected to sell their property at market value , if it's no longer required for postal purposes.

    Whats the long term plan for the post office building, I wonder.
