Great work from RSS & TUS

Galway Rural Development - Monday, July 06, 2015

Here are some more examples of the great work being carried out in East Galway by RSS & TUS.  In particular the Lisheen Infant Memorial is a very poignant story. The earth from unmarked infant graves has been placed in small pots within a white coffin under the green astroturf and this can be lifted up and more pots added to it anonymously. The memorial was built in the shape of a cradle by the RSS team as a permanent memorial to the infants from darker times. Click here to see other pictures: RSS and TUS work around the County


Welcome to the Galway Rural Development website. Galway Rural Development, through the programmes we administer, will continue to work along with other agencies, groups and individuals around the county to improve the quality of life for all citizens in our area. We especially wish to work with those who are most in need of assistance, to provide real opportunities for people to gain significant improvements for themselves and their communities throughout rural Galway.
