The Atlantic Economic Corridor (AEC) is driven by business representatives and communities and supported by national and local government and State agencies.

The AEC enjoys a largely linear arc, stretching from the northern tip of Co Donegal down the western and mid-western counties to the rugged bays and mountains of Co Kerry. The AEC linear region has a core population of 1.7 million people, or 36pc of the national population. Connectivity is strong with international airports in Shannon and Ireland West and key regional airports at Farranfore and Donegal.

Major commercial shipping operates out of Foynes and the port of Galway, with Ireland’s largest fishing port based at Killybegs. With a vibrant and young population, the region boasts Universities in Limerick and Galway and Institutes of Technology in Tralee, Limerick, Galway/Mayo, Sligo and Letterkenny. A number of important economic centres stretch along the length of the AEC, including Tralee, Limerick, Shannon, Ennis, Galway, Castlebar, Ballina, Sligo, Roscommon, Carrick-on-Shannon and Letterkenny.
