May 18, 2013  

– Proposal first tabled by Cllr. William Lavelle in February
– Local businesses, led by River Café, to house equipment supported by SDCC
– Free WiFi represent first ‘big win’ for Lucan Village Network

Local businesses in Lucan Village, led by Michael Keane of the River Café, this week joined with Cllr. William Lavelle, local councillor and Chair of the Lucan Village Network in welcoming theintroduction of free WiFi in Lucan Village.

This follows a proposal initiated by Cllr. William Lavelle at the February meeting of the Council’s Lucan Area Committee. In response, the Council has worked with William and with local businesses including the River Café, Kenny’s Vesey Arms, Fresh’n’Fruity and McAllisters Fish.

The Council has worked with a third party supplier to secure the required infrastructure.

Michael Keane of the River Café stated: “It is great news for Lucan Village that it has been selected for the Wifi project. It is also great to see that all the hard work of Lucan Village Network is bearing fruit. That South Dublin County Council is supporting WiFi in the village is very encouraging for future enhancements. The Lucan Village Network continues to drive initiatives for the improvement of our village amenities and we hope to get support for these in the near future.”

Cllr. William Lavelle stated: “The provision of free WiFi in Lucan Village represents the first ‘big win’ for Lucan Village Network and our efforts to attract more visitors to Lucan Village. I wish to thank the Council IT Department for their active support in responding to my proposal and I wish to commend local businesses for their proactive and enthusiastic approach in helping to introduce this important new initiative.”
