One Good Deed… Galway Restaurant Offers Free Meals to Emergency Service Workers

A very nice move from this Salthill spot.

It’s long been said that times of crisis bring out the best in some, and that’s certainly the case at The Galleon Restaurant in Salthill. 

The coastal town in Galway is one of those worst hit by the storms of recent days, as evidenced in the many incredible pictures circulating of the area.

Emergency service workers and ESB crews were on the scene all day yesterday, keeping locals safe and working on repairs.

To show some gratitude and solidarity, the good folk at The Galleon took to Facebook to offer a free hot meal for any emergency worker in the area.


The gesture went down very well with fans of the page and subsequent posts suggest that many such workers nearby availed of the kind offer.

Management at the restaurant also shared a Vine video, showing the conditions at the time.

Unfortunately it seems the worst of the weather isn’t over yet, as we’re set to see stormy conditions return on Sunday and Monday.
