WiFi4EU in towns and villages in Offaly

Tullamore WiFi4EUAccessPointLogoJPGVisitOffaly Free WiFi Shannon Harbour 

2021 Q4 Review (December 2021) :

County Offaly was allocated four vouchers to the value of €15,000 by the WiFi4EU project for Tullamore, Birr and Edenderry Municipal District areas and a fourth voucher for county locations that have not been connected through each of the Municipal District vouchers.

This €15,000 per voucher, was matched by the same amount of funding, from the Department of Rural and Community Development Regional Development and Innovation (RDI). Communities and the council are covering the ongoing operational costs e.g. the connection costs per month.

On 11 October 2020, the Tullamore WiFi4EU voucher was launched for locations on the town streetscape and some community venues in the Municipal District. We were featured in the EU Commission newsletter as first in Ireland to start the voucher claim process, see list below. Between then and the end of Q1 2021, we completed the rest of the current WiFi project locations. Nearly 100 public WiFi4EU access points are available across the county. 

Tourist locations with public WiFi include the Edenderry Harbour area, Tullamore boardwalk, Pullogh jetty and Shannon Harbour all on the Grand Canal  on which the towpath is being upgraded as part of the national Grand Canal Greenway amenity route. We also service three locations in Kinnitty (public WiFi in Giltraps, the Slieve Bloom Bar and the Community Centre); the Tourist Office in Clonmacnoise and some of the Birr Castle cafe outdoor seating area, Killeens and Lukers in Shannonbridge and Banagher Harbour.

See our interview last year late 2020 in the EU Commission newsletter here.
