Hi everyone and happy new year! My name is Jonathan Madden. I am creating Loughrea's first remote working hub, which we aim to have open this summer.
This will be a high quality professional and exciting space for our remote working community. We have an amazing building, many of you will know it as the "old corrys unit". It is 7000 sq ft, lots of floor to ceiling glass and I know we can make this one of the finest hubs in the whole country. If you are interested in working from here please please please complete the survey at comworks.ie/survey
Like most of you, I have been a remote worker for many years. It's been amazing and freeing but it's also been tough and lonely at times. I travelled to Galway from Tynagh twice a week, just to use The Portershed hub because after a decade of remote work I really just missed people but the commute was just too much in the end.
I never thought it would be possible to build a hub in rural Galway but the pandemic and widespread adoption of remote work has now given us an amazing opportunity to rebuild our lives to suit us better. We now have the large numbers of remote workers we need to build an amazing workspace in Loughrea and with a little help from all of you I know we can create a really special place.
If you would like to get involved, have any thoughts or questions please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks everyone and all the best. Jonathan
Depending on what side of Portumna you are on I understand Loughrea may not suit you so please support your local hubs Ballinasloe Gort and Killimor. Thanks
