New Businesses at the Creative Quarter
The future looks bright for the fledgling Creative Quarter. The area is already populated by film makers, designers, writers, translators, artists, technology experts, photographers, architects and more. A recent IDA proposition to promote Balbriggan as a great place to live and work has meant more work for these businesses. Through its association with FEx and the newly formed BCQ, Balbriggan is proud to be playing an active part in Ireland’s economic recovery, forming a stronger creative community that will enhance the cultural life of the community, attract more tourism and business to the area and consequently increase the economic and cultural potential not only of Balbriggan, but of north Fingal in general.
