At its monthly board meeting, convened recently on Toraigh, Údarás na Gaeltachta approved funding for a new gteic digital hub on Toraigh, which will be developed adjacent to the island’s Community Centre. The project is being developed by the island’s Community Co-operative, Comharchumann Thoraí Teo. The gteic will offer shared workspace which will be attractive solution to start-up enterprises and remote workers, particularly in light of the unprecedented growth of remote-working in recent years.
The facility will also be available as a community space and meeting centre.
An tÚdarás also approved funding to Coiste Forbartha na Málainne Bige to enable them to develop a digital hub in Seanscoil na Málainne Bige in Gleann Cholm Cille. This investment has been approved as co-funding to the project which is being delivered in partnership with Donegal County Council.
The digital hubs will extend the gteic network, a network of over 30 integrated innovative digital hubs, with highspeed broadband, being developed by Údarás na Gaeltachta in Gaeltacht areas throughout the country.
