Dúchas na Gaillimhe - Galway Civic Trust committed to protecting and enhancing Galway's natural, built and cultural heritage
Galway Civic Trust has been fortunate to have the projects it has undertaken recognised by a number of prestigious National and International awards. The receipt of such awards is a welcome endorsement of the excellent work carried out by the staff of the Civic Trust since 1992.
The patron of Galway Civic Trust is the Mayor of Galway City. Since first established Galway Civic Trust has received continuous financial assistance from many state and semi state agencies, and all forms of Corporate and private sector support. The most notable being:
Intreo is the National Training and Employment Authority in Ireland. Through it's various employment training grants Galway Civic Trust has been able to employ an average 20 people each year. Intreo is singly the Trust's biggest sponsor as it provides most of the manpower requirements for our current projects. In return the Trust has completed many outstanding projects down through the years and a significant number of our project workers have progressed to secure full time private sector employment.
Galway City Council has embraced the Civic Trust concept and has been extremely supportive. In addition to the annual grant the council's elected representatives and officials have assisted and encouraged the work of Galway Civic Trust whenever possible.
OPW - The Office of Public has responsibility for the day-to-day running of all National Monuments and National Historic Properties.
Galway Civic Trust relies for most of its running costs on membership and donations. We are extremely grateful for the generous support we have received from both individuals and the business community since our formation in 1992.
