Sneem Digital Hub was made possible by a hard-working and dedicated group of community members who are concerned about the effects of emigration and concentration of jobs in the big cities in Ireland. The aim of this Hub is to bring reliable digital infrastructure and quality jobs to the Sneem. In doing so, the community hope to add more young people and young families to this close-knit village.
The Sneem Digital Hub Management Committee are volunteers who have worked tirelessly to bring the building, which was once a dance hall, to life as a modern, high tech digital hub.
The Board of Sneem Digital Hub are:
— Niall Scott
— John V. O’Sullivan
— Julia O’Connor
— Alan Davies
— Drew Borrett
They are accompanied by the following Committee members:
— Olive Quinlan
— Cáit O’Shea
— Padraig Burns
— Mary Maloney
The support of individuals and businesses in the local community has been a critical component of the success in getting the hub up and running.
Crucial state funding, without which the project would never have got off the ground, was gratefully recieved from Enterprise Ireland, South Kerry Development Partnership and The Department of Rural & Community Development (administered via Kerry County Council).
