The Tipperary technology park located in Bawntameena, Nenagh Road, Thurles, heralds a new era for industry in North Tipperary and Thurles. By establishing a new Technology Park in Thurles, Shannon Development is setting out to further position Thurles as a player in the new knowledge economy.
When fully complete, Tipperary Technology Park will cater for a mix of overseas and Irish-owned technology and knowledge-driven enterprises. A high quality physical environment, with an advanced telecommunications infrastructure for indigenous and inward investment technology companies, it will become a hub of technology and knowledge based activity with strong diffusion impact throughout North Tipperary.
