Ballybrown-Clarina remote hub open for business

Deputy Mayor councillor Dan McSweeney was on hand to launch the Ballybrown-Clarina Remote Working Hub.

AFTER receiving Community Recognition funding in 2023, Ballybrown-Clarina Community Council have finished works on their Remote Working Hub and are ready to welcome users.

The delivery of a remote working hub formed part of a larger grant application to carry out extensive works in Ballybrown-Clarina Community Resource Centre. These works included the provision of a covered outdoor area, improved accessibility to toilets, upgrade of lighting throughout the facility, and the provision of remote working hub facilities.

Under the Department of Community and Rural Development Community Recognition fund, the Ballybrown-Clarina area received in excess of €114,000, including €60,007 for Ballybrown-Clarina Community Resource Centre.

Welcoming the opening of the hub, Deputy Mayor Cllr Dan McSweeney deemed it “a major addition for the community of Ballybrown-Clarina”.

“Over the years some in Ballybrown-Clarina have had difficulty accessing high speed broadband for work, this facility now provides high speed broadband and will allow local people work in their community.

“Only for the hard work of local volunteers, this project would not have been possible and it is important I thank them for their hard work,” Deputy Mayor McSweeney said.

The Fine Gael man went on to say that he looks forward to all works being completed in Ballybrown-Clarina Community Resource Centre in the coming weeks as part of the funding allocation.

“As they mark 10 years this month of officially opening, I look forward to seeing the ambitious projects they will embark on over the next ten years,” the Deputy Mayor concluded.
