I agree with most of what you say. The only issue is time, Main st / Market st is taking an age.
My point is Westport seems to have a can do attitude which Castlebar seems to lack.

We have the multiples down one end of town, which after six is dead. We need to claim back the centre and it is not helpful that there is a byelaw banning businesses from serving alcohol on the street. We should try to get a more Galway / Westport atmosphere on this wonderful road.
Also what idiot decided that there would be no bar exemption for the Blues Festival? I fear the death of this event after that particular move.
It just we seem to do things half arsed, if it were Westport national media would be plugging this all week. Brand Castlebar I am behind but it just seems to be a bit flat, why not rent out the closed businesses for a nominal fee to get things moving ?
