Music Organisations Move from St Mary’s College to Distillery Road

Galway Music Centre, Galway Music Residency and Music for Galway have now relocated from St Mary’s College to the university’s campus at Distillery Road. This follows the relocation of Maoin Cheoil na Gaillimhe in August 2017 from St Mary’s to the Presentation Primary School on Newcastle Road. The Galway Youth Orchestra will remain at St Mary’s College for the foreseeable future. These changes bring to an end the five-year period of co-location of these five music organisations on one site in Galway and reflects growing pressure on facilities at St Mary’s College. Galway Music Centre’s members remain committed to successfully advocating for greater co-ordination of facilities and services for music education and performance in Galway.
