A Positive Voice Working for the Community
Welcome to Niall McNelis Website
I engage in an extensive range of activities to insure that those living in Knocknacarra, Salthill, Taylor’s Hill and Rahoon have their voices heard and that their interests/concerns are communicated effectively to local and national government.
I actively contribute to key policy and stakeholder bodies in Galway and the region, by participating on numerous committees, steering groups & boards.
