Free WiFi

FREE Wi-Fi - WiFi4EU

Free Wi-Fi is available in Longford Ballymahon and Drumlish – WiFi4EU

This project was funded through the EU & Department of Rural and Community Development, to promote access to Wi-Fi connectivity in public spaces in municipalities throughout Europe.


Longford is the first county to enable eduroam WiFi in the town centres of Longford, Ballymahon and Drumlish. 

eduroam is also available at Longford, Ballymahon and Granard Libraries.

eduroam is a federated service that allows roaming research and educational users to more easily obtain Internet access via the WiFi service at participating sites. When attaching to eduroam WiFi users are authenticated via their home institution. If authentication succeeds the user is granted wireless network access.

Further information on eduroam is available from the national eduroam site for Ireland, which identifies eduroam hotspots in Ireland, and from the central eduroam service website, which identifies eduroam hotspots worldwide.
