“This is a hugely significant announcement for West Waterford and Dungarvan Town. Before the last general election I consistently called for more of a focus on West Waterford as many IDA jobs had been brought to the City and East of Waterford County. I am delighted that this announcement has been made today and it will have a massive impact on Dungarvan’s local economy.

“There can be no doubt that the economy is recovering and it is imperative that we bring the recovery home; so that families right around Waterford feel its impact in a real and tangible way.

“I will continue to work with my Ministerial Colleagues and the IDA to ensure that investments like this are brought to Waterford. While it’s not possible to bring every investment to Waterford, it is critical that we get our fair share.”
