Works on new innovation centre in Roscommon to begin next year

It’s hoped that construction on a new business innovation centre in Roscommon will start by the end of 2017.

Roscommon County Council has allocated 1.5 million euro for the development of two centres, in Roscommon and Monksland with funds also set aside for hot-desking facilities throughout the county for small businesses.

It’s hoped that a working group will meet early in the new year to progress the Roscommon project, which will see over a 10,000 square foot development in the town with broadband speeds of up to 3 gigs.
