Jarlath Feeney, long-standing Galway resident and entrepreneur, has declared his candidacy for the upcoming city council elections, with a progressive platform focused on the values of inclusivity, sustainability, and community well-being.

When asked about his decision to run as a candidate, Jarlath said that he city needs a fresh voice, and I will be that voice.

“I love this city and its people, and I feel the time is right for me to use the experience and vision I have gained over the years to support Galway West and the city to chart its future”.

Key priorities of Jarlath’s campaign include:

- Access to Housing: Committing to innovative solutions to provide affordable housing and ending homelessness.

- Transportation: Enhancing bus services to be more frequent and reliable, ensuring that all residents can navigate the city with ease.

- Safety and Health: Expanding safe walking and cycling lanes to promote a healthier lifestyle and protect our citizens.

- Sustainability: Championing initiatives to make Galway a leading sustainable city, preserving its beauty and resources for future generations.

- Infrastructure: Getting the Outer Ring Road and Bridge completed.

Jarlath’s campaign officially kicks last week and he will be meeting with as many people as possible in the Galway West Local Electoral Area where he hopes to hear from them about their hopes and their concerns.

“My vision for Galway is one where progress and tradition go hand in hand,” added Jarlath. “It’s about creating a city that cares for all its residents and leads by example in building a sustainable future.”
