One of the main streets in Athenry town is to be closed for five weeks from tomorrow (tues oct 31) to facilitate wastewater works
The next stage of Irish Water’s Athenry Sewerage Scheme project requires the closure of Bridge Street from tomorrow to the 1st of December, with works also taking place on Court Lane.

Councillor for the Athenry/Oranmore area Shelly Herterich-Quinn feels the town is equipped to cope with the closure
Galway County Council is also commencing roadworks in Athenry from tomorrow, for a two week period
