Galway to be declared anti-racist city

March 10th, 2005 | by Andrew Ó Baoill |

I’m wary of claims that it’s the first in the world but the decision to declare Galway an anti-racist city – with resonances of the nuclear-free cities declared in yesteryear – is at least a positive move. For those who wondered what difference it would make for Labour to gain greater control of the city, this is an answer – at least a symbolic one – that will hopefully be reflected in improved on-the-ground work.

    Just to clarify that this initiative came from Galway City Development Board and was launched two years ago by FF Mayor Val Hanley. What is happening is that the Anti-Racism Strategy for Galway City will be launched by current Mayor, Cllr. Catherine Connolly (Lab) on 21st March.
