Galway East TD and Minister for Rural Affairs Seán Canney and Cllr Gabe Cronnelly have received confirmation that Galway County Council will open the new link road off the Athenry by-pass connecting Athenry Presentation College next week.
Minister Canney said: “This is good news for Athenry and the Presentation College. The road through the IDA land will allow for safe access to the school and also eliminate traffic congestion at the Raheen Woods Hotel entrance.”
Both Minister Canney and Cllr Cronnelly have worked tirelessly to get the road open to allow vital access to the school.
Minister Canney added: “We thank Galway County Council for its efforts in getting the road open.
“We also acknowledge the commitment and support of the IDA and the Department of Education and Skills to have the project completed.
“We look forward to better traffic movement and free flow of traffic at this very busy location in Athenry.”
