Counties in the west of Ireland can seize the opportunity to renew itself by attracting thousands of young professionals and families to make new lives in the region.
That’s according to the Western Development Commission which today launches a new campaign called ‘More to Life’ to showcase the growing number of career and lifestyle opportunities available in Donegal and the West.

With more and more people working remotely due to the Covid19 pandemic, the WDC is encouraging people to make a permanent move to the West.
The campaign shows that movers can avail of the many job options open across multiple sectors and enjoy housing costs that are among the lowest in Ireland.
Bundoran scientist and chef Finn Ní Fhaolain features in the series showing scenes of home, work and life up and down the West of Ireland.
Commenting on the new campaign, Western Development Commission CEO Tomás Ó Síocháin, said: “The phrase ‘More to Life’ has never been more true and now is the time for the West of Ireland, one of Europe’s great regions, to write a bold new chapter.
“Out of adversity comes opportunity and the West of Ireland has a big opportunity to renew and reinvigorate itself. There are now an unprecedented number of career options in the West, some of them caused by the unexpected events of 2020 and the global pandemic.”
In addition, through the Atlantic Economic Corridor (AEC) initiative, the WDC is building a network of over 100 Hubs that support remote working, community enterprises and the development of ‘second sites’ in the region for businesses. This will include an online booking engine for remote working spaces from Donegal to Kerry, which will be rolled out in the autumn.
