Jigginstown datacentre project updates

Why datacentres are needed

Datacentres provide the physical infrastructure for the technology we depend on at work and in our personal lives. Whenever you open an app on your phone, join a virtual classroom or meeting, snap and save photos, or play a game with your friends online, you are using a datacentre. Local businesses, government, hospitals, and schools rely on datacentres every day to deliver goods and services to you.

January 9, 2024 update

Microsoft is developing proposals for a data centre in Jigginstown, near Naas, County Kildare. This site, located at Jigginstown, Naas, Co. Kildare, was zoned for datacentre development by Kildare County Council in the Naas Local Area Plan 2021- 2027. In November 2023, we welcomed local people in Naas to join us in the Osprey Hotel to review our early concepts.
