More than €400,000 to support remote working hubs

Deputy Denis Naughten has welcomed the allocation of more than €400,000 for remote working hubs across Roscommon and Galway in Athlone, Ballyhaunis, Boyle, Ballinasloe, Castleplunkett, Castlerea, Clonberne, Drumboylan, Dangan, Elphin, Glenamaddy, Kiltoom, Monksland and Tulsk.

The Cathaoirleach of the Dáil Rural Affairs Committee, Dep Naughten said: “This funding will allow local people living or working away to relocate back to east Galway or County Roscommon as well as providing new opportunities for employment locally.

“Remote working opportunities will help to bring young families back into communities which are struggling to keep local services, such as schools, open, and this investment along with the roll out of the National Broadband Plan will transform our towns, villages, and rural areas.

“I’m delighted for the successful projects, many of which I have been involved with supporting over the years, and I know that the local communities and economy will directly benefit as a result of this investment.”
