New €4m enterprise centre to be named after John Hume

The new €4m social enterprise centre in Letterkenny will be named the ‘John Hume Social Enterprise Centre.

A motion to name the centre after the former Nobel Peace Prize winner was proposed by Councillor Dessie Shiels and passed at a meeting of the Letterkenny Municipal District recently.  

The motion read: “That this council name the new Social Enterprise Centre to be constructed in Letterkenny the “John Hume Social Enterprise Centre” in recognition of the Nobel Peace prize recipient and a man who championed the cause of social inclusion in the quest to bring peace to the Island of Ireland”.
