Christmas Lights Under Threat

July 31, 2012

The Christmas Lights may not be errected this year due to the serious debt and high cost of erecting and maintaining them each year. Below is an interview Jimmy Flynn, Chamber President did with the Western People on 31 July 2012.

Motorway Back on Track

July 20, 2012

The Chamber is delighted that the Government have given the go-ahead for
the M17-M18 Tuam-Gort motorway. This is critical infrastructure – vital to our
town and region. Work could start as early as next year and should take about
three years. The motorway will begin about 10 miles south of Claremorris and
will cut the journey time to Galway in half.

Representatives of the Chamber have since met Transport Minister Leo
Varadkar to discuss the detail and to lobby him to sanction the next phase of
the motorway, from Milltown to Claremorris. It’s too soon to say when money will
be available. However, we will continue to lobby hard for the next phase, as we
have successfully done for this one.

The road approved this week adds to the attractiveness of Claremorris as a
place to do business. It’s yet another resource to add to the stockpile we have,
including industrial-grade electricity, broadband and natural gas connectivity.
Claremorris now offers industry 110kV power supplies, 156Mb broadband speeds,
and connectivity to Corrib when it comes on stream.
