GOT a cracking idea but don’t have the space or internet connection to work on it?
Then be sure to check out one of Clare’s brand new shiny digital hubs, opened just yesterday by Minister of State Pat Breen.
Three digital hub facilities developed by Clare County Council were officially opened in Kilrush, Miltown Malbay and Feakle.
“I am familiar with many of the businesses already using the Kilrush Hub, and recognise these entrepreneurs as the backbone of our rural economies in Clare.
“Entrepreneurship and business investment must continue to be encouraged and supported, especially in rural towns and villages, which inevitably face bigger challenges than those setting up in major cities,” Minister Breen commented.
The digital hubs will support rural social enterprises and the wider community by providing flexible, affordable hot-desks, co-working, conference and training facilities for residents, visitors and entrepreneurs for as little as €10 per day.
“Today, we have taken a giant stride forward which I am confident will be the first step in our shared journey to making rural Clare a sustainable and thriving place to live and work,” Mayor of Clare, Tom McNamara commented.
