Údarás na Gaeltachta to create 300 jobs in Gweedore with €4.7 million investment

gweedorebusinessparkÚdarás na Gaeltachta have announced that they are to support the creation of 300 new jobs on the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park over the next 3 years.

80 new jobs for the Business Park will also be coming on-stream in the near future.

The agency is to invest a total of €4.7 million over the next 3 years to support further enterprise development, employment creation, and carry out a capital redevelopment programme on a number of its properties.

An action plan, presented in the Enterprise Development on the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park report, launched today (27 March), sets out a programme that aims to attract employment creation opportunities to the Business Park.

The Report was produced by the Fóram Forbartha Fiontraíochta, an interagency working group, set up by Údarás na Gaeltachta as an immediate response to the announcement by Largo Foods in March 2014 that it was to cease manufacturing in Gaoth Dobhair and transfer all its operations to its manufacturing facility in Ashbourne, Co Meath, resulting in the loss of 146 jobs.
