& # 39; Alternate brown snakes and large whites for one hectare of open (and safe!) Space. Are you tired of crowded beaches? & # 39; the letter reads.

& # 39; At Arranmore you have secluded beaches all by yourself. The small pubs here have no schooners, but they do have Guinness on tap that will blow them out of the water. & # 39;

The open letter accused the declining population of generation emigration and widespread hunger.

& # 39; Over the past 150 years, since the famine hit Ireland for the first time, hundreds of our natives have found their way to Down Under looking for new opportunities & # 39 ;, says the letter.

According to 2016 data, only 469 people live on the island.

Reliable tap water was only made available throughout the mainland between 1973 and 1975

Arranmore was the first offshore island in Ireland that was connected to the electricity grid in 1957.

The island relies mainly on tourism to collect its income.

& # 39; This massive exodus continued year after year. Traditional industries such as fishing and agriculture are simply not enough to keep young people here. Keeping people here was a challenge. & # 39;

The open letter claimed that his digital transformation had aligned the island with other business cities such as Sydney and Melbourne.

& # 39; We wanted Aussies to be the first to know that Arranmore Island is now online and officially open to companies.

& # 39; We are now online if you want to talk about a project. In fact, we are online 24/7. We have many catch-up movements to do. & # 39;

The open letter even has a large number of skilled employees, from graphic designers to photographers.

& # 39; There is Jessie, a graphic designer. Neil, developer of mobile games. Matt, an app developer. And Elaine, a photographer. Moreover, we have a wealth of skilled professionals who can order the manufacturer (sic). & # 39;
