Civic Naming Policy Group

Civic Naming Policy Group

Galway City Council recognises that public commemorations offer opportunities to honour, celebrate or remember a person, groups of people or events of significance.


This protocol sets out the process by which Galway City Council will consider the commemoration of events or individuals, either by the naming of public infrastructure in the ownership or remit of Galway City Council or by the installation of a monument, memorial, or plaque in the public realm within the jurisdiction of Galway City Council.


Commemorations may take the form of permanent and fixed plaques, memorial, monument, the naming of a building/new road etc.
