GCBA CONGRATULATE VOLVO OCEAN RACE ORGANISERS

The Chairperson of the Galway City Business Association, Anthony Ryan, has warmly congratulated the organisers of the Volvo Ocean Race Finale for organising “such an iconic event in Galway”.
The GCBA Chairperson told how the event – the third largest sporting event in the world this year after the Olympics and the European Championships – showed, “How the spirit of cooperation of all the organisations in Galway– ‘Let’s Do It Galway’, ‘Let’s Do It Global’, Galway City & County Council, Business Organisations such as the GCBA and the Galway Chamber of Commerce, NUIG, Salthill Development and other voluntary organisations – can bring such benefits to the city and when resources are combined, really are a bolt of force”.
He continues, “Our members were delighted with the immense footfall the event brought to the city and with such volume the excellent business they benefitted from in particular those in the hospitality and restaurant sector. On behalf of our members, I would also like to offer their congratulations and thanks to the event organisers”.
