Developing a key hub

Shannon is a key national and international centre of importance for employment, connectivity, international trade and foreign direct investment and is home to the largest aerospace and aviation cluster in Ireland, which currently consists of over 80 firms and is growing steadily.

With the development of the International Aviation Services Centre (IASC), continued expansion of services at Shannon International Airport, and the planned enhancements of the green infrastructure network and public realm improvements in the town, including the development of a Masterplan for the town of Shannon, there are significant opportunities for growth and to become a Centre of Economic Importance along the Atlantic Economic Corridor (AEC). Shannon Free Zone, the largest multi-sectoral business park outside of Dublin, is 60 years old this year and is the base for some of the world’s leading companies in ICT, engineering, medical devices, manufacturing and financial services sectors.
