Wicklow County Council has granted a 10-year planning permission for a €150 million film studio and media campus in Greystones backed by the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF).

Greystones Media Campus (GMC) Ltd is planning to build “a state of the art” film studio and media campus on a 50-acre site in Greystones, in a scheme that will create more than 1,500 jobs.

The project is a 50/50 joint venture between construction group John Sisk & Son Ltd and and ISIF, a State agency that operates under the umbrella of the National Treasury Management Agency.

Productions

Ardmore Studios and Ashford Studios have already put Co Wicklow at the centre of the Irish movie and TV industry, with productions including Braveheart, The Tudors, Penny Dreadful and Vikings shot there.

The promoters of the venture say GMC will capitalise on the growing demand for content by streaming services Amazon, Netflix and Hulu, and more established operators such as HBO and Disney.

  • Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon on a daily basis. Its always helpful to read through articles from other writers and use something from their web sites.

  • The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesnt fail me just as much as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, but I actually thought you would have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you could fix if you werent too busy searching for attention.
