State-funded relocation grants and tax incentives for remote working are to be introduced by the Government to lure workers from cites to rural towns and villages.
Pubs are to become remote working hubs in this new plan to boost rural Ireland. There will be the provision of public sector hubs in regional towns for public servants to work in their local areas. As part of the plan, €1bn Rural Regeneration Fund will be used to convert old cinemas, theatres and town halls into 400 remote-working hubs with high-speed broadband.
