Story So Far

Story so far…………


One Saturday afternoon in September 2014 as part of West Cork’s food festival, A Taste of West Cork, the idea of creating a digital hub in Skibbereen was born. Within two months, the first committee meeting had taken place, attended by eight people with a passion for West Cork and keen to see the area thrive in a sustainable manner. Local businessman John Field and his family subsequently donated a building which was to become the Ludgate Hub. In keeping with the theme of sustainability, in its previous lives the building had been both the local cinema and bakery. Within six months, the sod had been turned and work began on transforming the building, funded by private investment.
