Your future in Roscommon

Roscommon is strategically positioned in the centre of Ireland and is serving a wide hinterland with a significant population of over 300,000 people.

Now is the time to return to Roscommon to bring the skills you have back to the county, to set up your own enterprise or to provide professional services for clients in the County.

Roscommon is experiencing a growth in new knowledge sectors including med tech, and new life Sciences and Pharma industries .

Despite overall population growth, the county suffers from an underlying trend of out-migration especially amongst the younger population.

The opportunities within Roscommon are diverse, there is a very strong Creative/Craft sector in the county and the strength of the MedTech and Life Sciences clusters in the West region is a key economic driver and in particular it’s growing presence in the Monkstown region in South Roscommon.

Roscommon offers an excellent opportunity for those would want to set-up business on their return to the county as there are existing vacant commercial buildings with excellent potential and the central location of Roscommon make doing business much more competitive than major urban  locations.

Inparticular the clean and green rural image of Roscommon makes the county ideal for the development of agri-food, tourism and recreational businesses.

Under the leader programme 8.8 million euro was announced for 2017 which will support and facilitate the continued development of rural communities all over the county.

Roscommon has seen the number of unemployed people decreasing by 40% and the county is looking for its people to return and build thriving businesses to ensure that the economic growth continues.
