Mountmellick Development Association have been awarded funding of over €200,000 from the Regional Enterprise fund for the establishment of a business centre that will include office space, hot desks and commercial kitchens.
Laois-Offaly TD and Minister for Justice & Equality Charlie Flanagan welcomed the funding allocation of €218,200 from the Regional Enterprise Development Fund to Mountmellick Development Association.
Under the scheme, funding is allocated on a regional basis as opposed to a county basis to back projects that will have a big impact on enterprise development and sustainable job creation within and across entire regions.
Speaking this morning Minister Flanagan stated:
“I am delighted that €218,200 has been allocated to the Mountmellick Development Association for the setting up of the Beale Centre for Business Excellence.
“This centre will be a state-of-the-art facility which will be the physical location in which the state agencies, 3rd level institutions and service providers work with people starting new and expanding existing businesses.”
“The facility will provide the latest technology along with open plan hot desks, office pods, meeting, teleconferencing rooms and state of the art commercial kitchens.”
“I want to congratulate Paddy Buggy, Manager of the MDA and the staff for their dedication to this project.”
