Positive step for Port

Labour senator, John Whelan also welcomed the jobs news and complimented Kieran Leavy for his role in bringing the jobs to Port.

“In the first significant manufacturing jobs announcement for Laois in years, the county is to benefit from the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs initiative,” he said.

“This is a positive development for Portarlington which has seen many employment setbacks over the years, but it is only part of a process for Laois and the Midlands, and I will continue to press the Government, Irish Water and Bord na Mona to expedite and move ahead with the construction of the €500 million Garryhinch reservoir.”
