    Default Objection to plan to build mosque in Galway.

    Fears that dome and minaret tower would be obtrusive


    Plans to develop a mosque and Muslim cultural centre to the rear of a semi-detached house in Ballybrit, have met with local opposition.
    Dr Mamoon Rashid and Dr Anwar Malik of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association of Ireland in Wellpark Grove have sought permission to develop the mosque and cultural centre to the rear of the house at The Cottages in Ballybrit.
    The development will comprise a single storey mosque building with a dome and minaret (two-storey height) to accommodate a prayer hall, circulation areas, toilets and two office rooms.
    There are also proposed alterations to the house, including a rear extension and an additional first floor bedroom, which will serve as accommodation for the current Imam, Ibrahim Noonan.
    “Due to the growing Muslim population in Galway, [the Ahmadiyya Association] have spent the last number of years looking for a designated place of worship in the Galway area rather than continue to hold service in residential accommodation in the city, which are unsuited in terms of function and the growing number of worshippers involved.

    I wasnt aware that Galway had a large Muslim population!

    It certainly kills the myth that immigrants are returning home, clearly Muslim immigrants are planning to stay for a very long time!

    This is a superb idea for Galway. Laissez-faire and liberal or not? The true test of the west!

    They are raising money in Waterford to build a mosque down here too.

    I hope our own serial objector Brendan mccann former member of the green party objects to this.

    We need some swiss-style direct democracy so we can ban all mosque building. Before you go mad, please stay a week in Birmingham, maybe Antiphon can put you up.

    The Hajj was on recently hes still probably over in Saudi walking round the meteor there. The apologisers here should go over and join him. They can go to a stoning together. Then again he might be busy trying to withdraw cash from the swiss bank account he has access to.
