Oranhill residents in call to develop new park

Galway Bay fm newsroom – A group of residents in Oranhill in Oranmore have made a call to develop a new park for the area.

It follows the recent rezoning of a site within the estate from housing to recreational.

The group hopes to hold a meeting with public representatives next week in a bid to bring the proposal a step forward.
