Organiser of NOW17 – Native Oyster Workshop 2017

Cuan Beo is a recently formed community based organisation established with a mission of improving the quality of life, environment, economy and heritage around Galway Bay.

We believe water and the quality of it underpins the economic and social fabric of the district and the recreational amenities available to us. We want to raise awareness of those living in the catchment of Galway Bay to this- to link life quality and water quality.

We want to help people make connections between how routine actions on land has consequences at sea. We want to connect those living inland with coastal communities who rely on the sea for their livelihoods. These connections have existed for millennia but have somehow eroded in recent times. Cuan Beo wishes to re-establish this connection between land and sea for the benefit of existing and future generations.
