County Galway Rural Resource Study

In the past decade the exceptionally rapid rate of change in population structures and economic activity has transformed many rural areas. Areas close to urban centres generally experienced increases in population and in economic and social activity while some remote areas experienced a decline. These distinctively opposing changes have different impacts on rural communities and those living in them. As a result adjustment is most likely required, not only for individuals and households in rural communities but also for the economic and social supports of rural areas. The rationale for this study is to examine how different rural areas adjust and respond to change and how households in different circumstances are affected.

Rural Ireland 2025 - Foresight Perspectives

Government policy for rural areas aims to build a rural economy where enterprises will be commercially competitive without damaging the environment. It seeks to have vibrant sustainable communities, with a quality of life that will make them attractive places in which to work and live. It aspires for equity of opportunity between rural and urban areas, and for balanced development between the regions. These initiatives are underpinned by EU policy for rural areas, which subscribes to the attainment of ‘living country sides’ within the context of balanced regional development across the Union.

It comprised of Friesian steers slaughtered at about 290 kg carcass weight.
