Galway City Council has confirmed that three well-known properties in the city are to be demolished.

The former Oasis nightclub in Salthill is to go the way of its next-door neighbour the Warwick, which was demolished last year to make way for a nursing home.

The Irish Times reports that the former Oasis nightclub in Lower Salthill was recently acquired by a new owner, and following discussions with the council, it's been agreed to bulldoze the building, while plans for the future of the site are not yet known.

Meanwhile, the former Corrib Great Southern Hotel on the Dublin Road in Galway - near the GMIT campus - has also been earmarked for demolition.

The once-popular hotel has fallen into disrepair in recent years, and it's understood the walls will start coming down next month.

The third building to be demolished is the former Connacht Laundry on St Helen's Street in Galway city.

Galway City Council told the Irish Times that the three separate projects would mark the culmination of significant effort by the Council's Environment Department to reduce dereliction across the city.
