Funding for Balbriggan hub will facilitate start up business in Dublin North

20/06/2012

Fine Gael TD for Dublin North Alan Farrell has said that the allocation of funding to Fumbally Exchange Balbriggan is a welcome investment in entrepreneurs, start-ups and sole traders in Dublin North.

“I would like to congratulate Fumbally Exchange Balbriggan on its successful bid for funding through Fingal County Enterprise Board, Balbriggan Town Council and Balbriggan Chamber of Commerce. I know that a lot of work has gone into achieving this financial support through the efforts of Sean Corrigan, and I commend these aforementioned agencies for recognising this as a worthwhile investment in our local entrepreneurs.

“The benefit of this initiative for start ups and sole traders is twofold; an appropriate base and a good business support network. By supporting Fumbally Exchange Balbriggan, we are giving a helping hand to the vital development of an entrepreneurial culture within the community. 

“I would encourage all suitable candidates in Fingal who are running or starting a small business to investigate the benefit of being part of this new micro enterprise centre in Balbriggan. There are almost 50 businesses that have benefited from the the Fumbally Exchange initiative in Dublin City Centre, where dividends have already paid off with a number of new commissions secured by the collective, including development on a GAA clubhouse in New York.

“It is encouraging to know that there is still interest in business and entrepreneurship in Dublin North, and I look forward to the products of innovation that this will create in Balbriggan and the wider community. For more information please visit www.fumballyexchange.ie.”
