A press release today says:
The fifth set of areas to offer the E.M.P includes locations in Dublin on the Royal Canal at Blanchardstown as well as Thomastown, Co Westmeath. On the Grand Canal Ballycowan, Derries and Gallen in Co Offaly will open. In addition Athy and Ballyteigue both in Co Kildare and St Mullins in Co Carlow which are all on the Barrow will also open for applications on the 21st January.
As far as I can see, the rest of the text of the press release is standard information that we already knew.
To see exactly what locations will be covered in batch 5, you’ll have to check the WI website on 21 January 2013.
