Those living in the north of the county may have heard of Cuan Beo (the Living Bay), a recently formed community based organisation established with a mission of improving the quality of life, environment, economy and heritage around Galway Bay.
Cuan Beo is specifically working to reconnect the Land and the Sea communities of South East Galway Bay from Rinville Point to Blackhead Point and the villages and towns within its catchment.
Cuan Beo will hold a public meeting tonight (Thurs) at Burren College of Art, Ballyvaughan from 7.30 pm to 9 pm. The event will give locals a chance to get involved with Cuan Beo and to meet staff from agencies involved in the development of Galway Bay and adjoining land areas on the Clare and Galway coast.
The evening will include an overview of the work of Cuan Beo, the economic, heritage, community and recreational value of the Bay and the work of Cuan Beo in reconnecting the Land and Sea communities of South East Galway Bay.
Gavin spoke with Gerry O’Halloran, Member of Cuan Beo and, Ruairí Ó Conchúir Local Authority Water and Communities Office, about the meeting.
