FLAG RAISING CEREMONY FOR SALTHILL & SILVERSTRAND BEACHES 2022

The Mayor of Galway, Cllr. Colette Connolly formally raised the flags for the beaches in the city on Wednesday 1st June, the first day of the bathing season.

Galway City Council would like to remind people to play their part and help retain the Blue Flag and Green Coast beach status for next year by keeping our beaches litter-free when visiting over the summer period.
