Stephen Donnelly, Fianna Fail TD for Wicklow and East Carlow is delighted to confirm today that Barley Field residents will be able to place an order for broadband from their preferred provider from late next month.

Deputy Donnelly commented, “For many months, I have been working closely with both residents and Eir to secure high speed broadband for the residents of Barley Field in Wicklow Hills, Newtownmountkennedy.

“Today’s announcement is very welcome for the residents and in particular for those who have had difficulty working from home since the estate’s construction, with little or no broadband to date.  Residents will be able to place an order for service with their preferred provider after the 20thof June 2018.

“Broadband is vital to businesses and homes in Wicklow, yet there are many premises and homes throughout the country with poor or non-existent internet connections. This must be end as a priority.”
