10 Kerry co-working hubs awarded funding to support reopening

Ten co-working hubs across Kerry have received funding to support their reopening as the economy recovers from the impact of COVID-19.

The investment has been made by the Department of Rural and Community Development as part of the Atlantic Economic Corridor Enterprise Hub Network project.

The funding aims to help hubs implement social distancing guidelines, purchase safety and online meeting equipment, and support marketing.

€300,000 has been allocated to 65 digital hubs from Kerry to Donegal, and in Kerry, 10 hubs have been given support – Castleisland Carnegie Library Hub, Dingle Hub, and HQ Tralee and Listowel.

Also receiving funding are Kenmare Co-Working Hub, Killarney Technology Innovation Centre, Office Light Cahersiveen, the RDI Hub, Sneem Digital Hub, and the Tom Crean Business Centre.
