Fianna fail councilor hits out at recent media criticism of Castlebar saying the county town has a lot to offer

A Castlebar councillor has hit out at recent media criticism of the county town, and says developments are underway that will make Castlebar the sporting hub of the West of Ireland as well as an attractive location for shoppers.

Recent newspaper articles highlighted the fact that there is currently no nightclub in Castlebar, with two hotels in the town closing recently, and many young people travel by bus from Castlebar to Westport at weekends for the social scene.

However, Fianna Fail Councillor Martin McLoughlin believes the county town has a lot to offer – as he outlined Midwest News.
