Anger and frustration as thieves target Circle of Life Garden in Salthill

Galway Bay FM Newsroom – Thieves who have repeatedly targeted the Circle of Life Garden in Salthill are being branded as “shameless”.

The Garden commemorates those who donated organs to give others a new lease of life.

But in recent weeks, thieves have stolen numerous plants and shrubs from the garden.

Martina Goggins is a co-founder of the Strange Boat Donor Foundation, which created and manages the garden.

She told Galway Talks of one particular incident where a special flower arrangement was stolen twice.
