CIÉ plans for Galway criticised

A row has broken out over a €1bn plan by CIÉ to develop a transport hub and new urban quarter for Galway city centre, writes Lorna Siggins .
Labour Party president Michael D Higgins has accused CIÉ and Minister for Transport Martin Cullen of a "sleight of hand" over the plan.
Mr Higgins and several environmental groups have criticised the fact that only one-quarter of the six-hectare site is to be used for public transport, while three-quarters of the area is to be developed for housing, retail and commercial outlets.
