A new digital access and tourism hub in Eyre Square is to be funded as part of a new €250,000 Digital Innovation Programme, which has been launched by the Minister for Community Development, Natural Resources and Digital Development, Seán Kyne.
The Digital Innovation Programme will provide funding to local authorities in the State to develop and implement local digital strategies, and to support projects which can be tested at a local level, with a view to expanding to other communities and counties.
The digital access and tourism hub will be located in the existing unused kiosk in the centre of Eyre Square. It will promote the city and county, and provide information on places of interest, attractions and other services. It will also operate as a Wifi hotspot. The project is being supported with a grant of €30,000 from the Department of Rural and Community Development.
