Plans to transform historic house at Nun’s Island into community cultural space

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Plans are being brought forward to transform an historic house at Nun’s Island into a community cultural space.

Galway City Council owns the property and intends on a complete refurbishment into a multipurpose space that would better support the theatre.

Councillor Niall McNelis says the plans show the council’s committment to the arts:
