Inishowen Sinn Féin Councillor Jack Murray has said that Enterprise Ireland must fund the connection of high speed internet to Lisfannon Industrial Estate as a matter of priority.
Councillor Murray made the comments at a meeting of the Inishowen Municipal District Committee as he requested that the council write to Enterprise Ireland to outline the necessity of the connection, seek a report on how they propose to move forward with the issue and seek a meeting between Inishowen councillors and Enterprise Ireland representatives.
Commenting after the meeting, Councillor Murray said;
"Lisfannon Industrial Estate has the potential to create dozens of jobs for Buncrana and the Inishowen peninsula. We have several vacant buildings which could host many companies and businesses but without fibre-optic broadband it is difficult to convince them to settle here.
