Welcoming the opening of the working hub Deputy Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Dan McSweeney said,
“This is a major addition for the Community of Ballybrown/Clarina with the opportunity to work remotely in the local area. Over the years some in Bally-brown/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.”
“This is a project I have worked on with the local community for some time and I am delighted to finally see it operational, 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.
“I look forward to all works being completed in Ballybrown/Clarina Community Resource Centre in the coming weeks as part of this funding allocation and as they mark ten years this month of officially opening I look forward to seeing the ambitious projects they will embark on over the next ten years.”
