One of Swinford’s landmark buildings has been refurbished and will be officially opened by Minister Heather Humphreys on Monday.
The Old Courthouse is now home to the Digiwest Hub which supports remote working.
Confirming her Mayo visit in the Dáil this week, the Minister for Rural and Community Development said she will also launch the National Hub Network in Swinford.
“I am delighted my Department has been able to support the development of that hub under our rural regeneration fund. An 18th-century courthouse has been refurbished into a hub, so not alone is the fund supporting remote working and enabling people to work locally in the west, it is giving an old building a new, 21st-century use.”
Describing the Swinford centre as a “flagship piece of remote working infrastructure”, Deputy Alan Dillon said the hub aims to provide a resource to local entrepreneurs, workers, and communities in providing a high-quality workspace with high-speed telecommunications capacity.
Office spaces include two desk, three desk, and four desk options, and a common room, meeting room, and larger conferencing room are also available.
