Letterkenny businesses could benefit from online trading – Cllr Kavanagh

Letterenny Town Council has been told that many businesses in the town could benefit from online trading if there were a clear e-commerce strategy in place.

Cllr Jimmy Kavanagh says the council has a level of know how in IT, and could come together with Letterkenny Chamber, LYIT and other bodies to develop and implement a plan.

The council agreed to host a workshop early in 2013 to gauge the level of interest.

Cllr Kavanagh says Letterkenny's American twin town Elizabethtown is known in New Jersey as "e-town", and a similar designation should be sought locally............
