BUSKERS IN GALWAY are furious at new plans by the city council that they say would severely limit their ability to earn a living.

The new set of bye-laws, which are out to public consultation, include that a performer would only be able to stay in one space for two hours and must immediately stop performing if a crowd that stops the movement of pedestrians gathers.

So in today’s poll we’re asking, do you give money to buskers?

Poll Results:

Yes  (3461)
Rarely (2973)
No  (2849)
