Meath County Council Launches #GoRemote Campaign


Meath County Council have launched its GoRemote campaign which seeks to highlight the opportunities for workers to do their jobs remotely either from their own homes or from a co-working hub.

Residents across Meath have the longest commuting times in the country with over 20% commuting over one hour to get to their jobs daily. This has a significant impact on not only their own lives but the quality of family life and the community around them.
