Extra funding being sought for completion of Loughrea Town Hall project

From Galway Bay FM newsroom- Additional funding is being sought to get the ambitious Loughrea Town Hall redevelopment project over the line.

€1.6m was allocated to the project in 2019, to see the building converted into a state of the art cultural and enterprise centre.
