This section contains details of meetings and conferences in regard to the New City and related topics. Members of the public are welcome to attend some of them. Your views, opinions, aspirations and ideas are very important and will help us develop a City, which will be desirable to live in. At these meetings the following themes are discussed:
  • The need for a New City and accompanying rejuvenation of the West of Ireland.
  • The plan to establish state-of-the-art infrastructure for high-speed communications and transport in this region. The establishment of a "Silicon Valley" on the outskirts of this city which will attract High Technology companies from around the world. This would benefit the surrounding counties - Mayo, Roscommon, north Galway, Sligo, Leitrim, Longford and Westmeath.�
  • How this development will stop the population drain from the West.�And alleviate the chronic congestion in Dublin.
  • Outline of plan for the New City.
  • How it will preserve and enhance Irish culture and traditions in this region.
