Thoor Ballylee to get much needed clean up

Thoor Ballylee to get much needed clean up

Galway Advertiser, February 14, 2013

By Kernan Andrews

Maintenance work around the famous ‘ Yeat’s Tower’ of Thoor Ballylee, in south County Galway is due to begin, following a lengthy period of consultation.

Following severe flooding in 2009 and 2010 the tower and its grounds were left severely damaged. After nearly two years of consultation with Failte Ireland, the Lady Gregory & Yeats Trail Group obtained permission to engage Tus Р Galway Rural Development, to start maintenance work.

The Lady Gregory and Yeats trail group welcome this partnership to improve the site coming into the tourist season. Thoor Ballylee is one of eight sites included in the Lady Gregory and Yeats Trail.

The trail seeks to promote south Galway by linking sites between Loughrea and Gort which have associations with Lady Gregory and W.B.Yeats. The group’s website can be viewed at www.ladygregoryyeatstrail.com5y345y
