Irish Examiner, 2 March 2013: Protests over Galway fish farm

Up to 2,000 people have attended a protest march in Galway city – voicing their opposition to the government’s plans to build a 15,000 tonne fish farm off the Aran Islands.

Led by a lone piper, anglers and environmentalists from Galway, Mayo, Clare, Dublin and Donegal marched from Eyre Square to the Spanish Arch, where speakers including Independent Deputy Noel Grealish addressed the crowd.

Demonstrators are warning the government the €100m project in Galway Bay could destroy wild salmon stocks in the region.
