Over the past few years Galway Tidy Towns have been painting the electrical boxes situated all around Galway city. They have painted in excess of 30 boxes with the theme of 'Galway', painted in exterior emulsions and coated with a weather resistant varnish. These were painted in conjunction with Galway Tidy Towns and Galway City Council using local artists.
They now propose to paint another 100 boxes in and around the city centre up until the end of November. Also using the theme of ‘Galway' with 5 artists, as follows -
