    Get what you pay for with the Carlow People.... Although it is a done deal, just they ain't paying money to develop the site
    The Penny's development start date was also reported by the Nationalist (to be fair).

    FG website have it down as a developer having bought it and the IDAmarketing it to clients currently with a view to minor updates being done within a few months

    Ok news I supoose. Hardly the same as a new employer coming in immediately though.
    What I'm getting here is Netwatch taking part of it and the IDA handling the rest?

    Why do you think this is a political stunt?

    Check out the front page of the nationalist..... The whitening job they've done on Gallaghers teeth is priceless

    Just being cynical, as a former Braun employee I'd love to see the place being used again.

    Re: New Business & Technology park for Carlow

    I'm thinking of going back and doing a course and if lucky a follow up degree in computers and electronics, software and game apps but im a bit unsure what course i should do. im thinking of applying to the carlow institute of further education and they have 4 im interested in doing. I don't want to go down the wrong road so want to plan a head.

    • Multimedia Production & Digital Movie
    • Games & Apps Development
    • Information Technology & Network Technician
    • Web Design & Digital Marketing



    With the New Business & Technology park for Carlow coming soon what kind of jobs will be there? I have been told that the Web Design & Digital Marketing could prove useful in that area. But will there be jobs there if i factor the new park in to my plan?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,787 ✭✭✭slimjimmc


    I don't think anyone can tell you what kind of jobs will be there, it might be all or none of your career choices. That would depend on what businesses the new developers manage to get in there and whether they have any vacancies in the foreseeable future. Some existing businesses might simply relocate there to reduce overheads rather than needing more space.

    Pick a career path based on what you want to do, not on a half filled industrial plot.

    Outside of Carlow IT, what are Carlows biggest employers?
    There is MSD, Thermo Air, Burnside, Unum, Oglesby and Butler that employ decent numbers. How much each I've no idea?
    Whatever way you look at it, there was a huge cull of large employers out of Carlow the past decade.

    Be crazy to factor in a maybe plan of new jobs into any career planning. In today's jobs markets you have to be flexible, especially if seeking work for the first time. There is absolutely no guarantee of a related job in Carlow or indeed within commuting distance, so be open to the possibility of moving for a while if that's what's needed.

    Yes. Looks busy too these days. Plenty of cars in the car park.

    Is this some kind of pisstake? Cattle marts belong on outskirts of towns and not in the heart of business and close to residential areas.

    Ah lads, back to the topic, hard to see how they would subdivide the building. It would really suit something like a call centre, along the lines of VHI in the old Feildcrest plant in Kilkenny. There were underground gas tanks, I wonder if they have to be removed or made safe in some way?

    Them tanks would be perfect for slurry storage and it could be sold by the barrowful to local gardeners for their roses

    If there are any old hairdryers left in the place, it could be a possibility.

    Amazon have just bought the old Jacobs factory in Tallaght and they also have data and call centres nearby so I doubt they will be moving to Carlow unless there are huge chunks of money being thrown at them.

    Sounds like they prob looked at the Braun site but went with something in Dublin instead.
