Galway County Council seeking applicants for Athenry Town Centre First Team

Galway County Council is seeking applicants for its Athenry Town Centre First Team.

Twelve residents from different backgrounds will form a Town Team to work on a series of projects in Athenry’s Town Centre under a new Town Centre First Plan.

The scheme focuses on developing town centres as social and economic hubs, as well as developing cultural and recreational hubs for local communities.
