Leitrim councillor gives cautious welcome to NBP announcement

Leitrim councillor Paddy O’ Rourke is giving a cautious welcomes to today’s announcements on rural broadband.

The Fianna Fail councillor says he understands that many rural areas in this part of the country will have a wait of at least 4 to 5 years before they see an upgraded service.

Speaking on the Let’s Talk show today, Councillor O’ Rourke says while today’s development should be a celebration, he doesn’t believe many people in Leitrim will be very excited.
