Three, Ireland’s largest high speed network and official National Broadband Scheme provider, today announced that they have donated a top-of-the-range wireless router to Aughrim-Kilmore Parish Community Centre at Dangan, providing them with free broadband for a year. 

Local members of the centre can now have free access to all their favourite websites thanks to Three and the National Broadband Scheme – bringing broadband services to Dangan and surrounding areas previously not covered.

Roy McHugh from Three presented the router to Gerry Tiernan, Chairman of Aughrim-Kilmore Community Development Association. He encouraged all the locals to visit the centre and try the new broadband service. Roy also explained that for just €20.32 per month, each individual can experience this excellent mobile broadband service for themselves – simply call into Carphone Warehouse in Carrick-On-Shannon for more details.

Chairman of Aughrim-Kilmore Community Development Association, Gerry Tiernan, thanked Three for their support and emphasised the importance of this broadband connection, which is necessary to educate the community. He also commended the success of the National Broadband Scheme, delivering broadband to rural areas previously not covered.

The NBS is co-funded by the EU under the European Regional Development Fund 2007-2013.
