A series of public meetings will take place in Ballyvaughan, Maree and Kinvara over the coming week in relation to the work of CuanBeo (the Living Bay), a recently formed community-based organisation established with a mission of improving the quality of life, environment, economy and heritage around Galway Bay

CuanBeo is specifically working to reconnect the Land and the Sea communities of South East Galway Bay from Rinville Point to Blackhead Point and the villages and towns within its catchment.

CuanBeo is hosting three public meetings in the Maree Community Centre (17 April), Merriman Hotel, Kinvara (18 April) and the Burren College of Art, Ballyvaughan (19 April). All meetings start at 7.30 pm and will end at 9.00 pm.

The public meetings will give locals a chance to get involved with CuanBeo and to meet staff from agencies involved in the development of Galway Bay and adjoining land areas on the Clare and Galway coast. The evening will include an overview of the work of CuanBeo, the economic, heritage, community and recreational value of the Bay and the work of CuanBeo in reconnecting the Land and Sea communities of South East Galway Bay

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
