An event will take place this Friday to mark the beginning of demolition at Gilmartin Road in Tuam.
The road is due to undergo an €8m rejuvenation project from Friday, which will involve the demolition of 30 old houses and the construction of 40 new homes.
21 council houses at Gilmartin Road and St Enda’s Avenue will also be refurbished as part of the project.
The event will take place on Friday from 12 noon at Gilmartin Road and will see councillors attend to see the demolition of the first of the houses.
Chairman of Tuam Municipal District Fianna Fail Cllr Donagh Killilea told Midwest News that it is a historic day for the town.
