31 July, 2017 - by David Cullinane TD


Sinn Féin TD for Waterford Deputy David Cullinane has warmly welcomed the opening of a new facility at Bausch and Lomb in Waterford and the announcement of additional jobs. He also welcomed a strong commitment from the Taoiseach to ensure Waterford thrives in the years to come.

Speaking at the Bausch and Lomb launch today, Deputy Cullinane said:

“I welcome the opening today of a new facility at Bausch and Lomb and the announcement of 150 jobs. This is a vote of confidence in Waterford and the staff by the company. Waterford needs many more days like this.

“I also welcome a strong commitment from the Taoiseach to ensure Waterford and the South East grows and thrives. However words need to be matched by action. Waterford and the South East has huge potential but we need greater Government support.

“The development of the North quays, securing the future of the Airport, increasing capacity at University Hospital Waterford and moving towards a Technological University in the region are key priorities. I will continue to work with local and national Government representatives in making sure these priorities are met and holding Government to account.”
