Sinn Féin Councillor Ruairí Ó Murchú has welcomed 300 new jobs to Dundalk. Cllr Ó Murchú who attended the IDA announcement in Crowne Plaza said:

“This is a welcome boost for Dundalk from Wasdell, a pharmaceutical packaging company. There will be a wide variety of jobs available at all levels: IT, management, Human Resources, production etc. They will be seeking suppliers to make contact immediately and are wasting no time in seeing this project get underway.”

The timescale for the company to begin will be quite soon. Cllr Ó Murchú said “They will start building in March and should be ready by October and then these initial 300 jobs will commence with a possibility of expanding later to 500 jobs.”

“With the upcoming challenges of Brexit we know the border areas will be detrimentally affected so this news today is very welcome.”
