Large parts of Louth have not been able to access highspeed wi-fi. But the launch of six ‘broadband connection points’ which went live in rural parts of Louth in the last week has been a major boost.

Broadband Connection Points (or BCPs) are public locations Which have been selected to receive high-speed connectivity in the first year of the National Broadband Plan.

The locations of the BCPs have been selected by the Department of Rural and Community Development and include public areas such as community halls, libraries, GAA facilities, enterprise hubs, tourist locations and other public spaces.

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.
