In Louth these will be located at Templetown and Port beaches, Clogherhead Pier, Mattock Rangers GAA club in Colton, Annaghminnon Rovers GAA club in Stonetownand Killanny GAA club. Another is also in planning at present for Stephenstown.

Visitors to these locations and 275 sites nationwide by the end of the year will be able to connect to hi-speed broadband.
