30 + YEARS OF COMMITMENT TO PILTOWN
Supporting business and encouraging start-ups
It all began.....
With a derelict site in the center of Piltown village…..
THE OLD CREAMERY ENTERPRISE CENTRE was completed at the end of February 2019.
This consists of a further 2,580 sq. ft for the creation of jobs in our locality.
This Phase of the project is now complete.
We now have five units of various sizes which are designed to assist the development
of business start-ups and employment growth in our area.
Our Local Directory 2020
The Piltown Directory is produced and updated by Piltown Community Enterprise as a service to local businesses and residents. It has been a huge success over the past 8 years. The present version was published 2017 at www.piltowndirectory.ie . We are now up-dating and expanding a new directory, OUR LOCAL DIRECTORY ,which will have many extra features and a wider list of businesses and Services.
