Major Investment for Ballybay Enterprise Park

After a competitive tender process, Ballybay Enterprise Park Ltd are delighted to announce the appointment of Rodney Brady Construction for the refurbishment and upgrade of five 1,500 sq ft units into state-of-the-art food grade production units. The LEADER supported project is part of a €400,000 plus investment in the park to create a Food Hub in the area for artisan and start up food businesses. It will build upon the county’s long food heritage in an industry that already has a turnover of over €1bn within the county and accounts for approximately 60% of its employment.

The refurbished Ballybay Food Hub will allow new business access to purpose-built food grade units. These will complement the existing food kitchen at the site which is regularly used by local food producers as well as regional training organisations. Finbarr Daly, CEO of Enterprising Monaghan which is one of the partner organisations involved in the project says that these units will be a great asset to the area supporting both new food projects and employment for Ballybay and its environs. He added that the support of LEADER is crucial to this phase of the project. The construction work which will start in the coming weeks is expected to be finished before Christmas this year with some tenants planning to move in early in 2020.

Enterprising Monaghan – launch Remote Working Training Programme

Remote working is one of the fastest growing work areas in Ireland. It is where employees have the opportunity to work remotely, full time or part-time, from home or a local hot desk facility. Employers are recognising the benefit of this flexible work arrangement from both a productivity and the quality of the life perspective.

The advent of smart new technologies and suitable hotdesking facilities near home means that many people and their companies are benefiting from this new way of working. Jobs in this area include IT, customer sales and service as well as accountancy and bookkeeping roles. Employers in the area include traditional companies such as the banks and consultancy firms in Dublin as well as new economy firms like Shopify and Wayfair.

With this in mind, Enterprising Monaghan, Monaghan County Council and The Monaghan Town Team have joined forces to deliver a remote working training programme at Enterprising Monaghan’s hot desk facility in M:Tek 1. The programme which recently started aims to train aspirant remote workers in the processes and procedures that they will need for careers in the area. Finbarr Daly, CEO of Enterprising Monaghan, as well as welcoming the programme participants was delighted to introduce Tracy Keogh, co-founder of Grow Remote to the workshop. Tracy is passionate about making sure that people know that there are great opportunities through this approach to work – literally at home on your laptop!
