NEWKD opened a new office in Cúilín in Dingle this week which will offer support and benefit the local community through various funding programmes, clubs and initiatives.
The new office which is located in Cúilín in Dingle was officially launched on Monday - during the enterprise month celebrations - and the event was attended by local groups and organisations including Joanna Jakowska SICAP Enterprise Officer; John Loughrey, Leader Development Officer and James Kildea of Corca Dhuibhne LAAC.
The Today FM current affairs programme The Last Word on Monday evening included a discussion about the difficulties being experienced by people operating small enterprises in rural locations. Matt Cooper interviewed the Ballymacelligott postmaster Brendan Mannix and the Director General of RGDATA, Tara Buckley on the segment.
Brendan was a bit dismayed to be asked what rates he pays as an opening question, something that he regards as his own private information, but this cost remains a big issue for traders in his situation.
