Adams welcomes Dundalk jobs announcement
Sinn Féin Louth TD Gerry Adams today attended the formal opening of US company Graebel in Dundalk and welcomed the announcement of 125 new jobs in their shared finance, IT, and accounting services.
Teachta Adams said:
“I want to welcome today's announcement of 125 new jobs in the services sector through Graebel ltd.
“I also want to commend the IDA for its hard work and success in attracting this new employer to Louth.
“This is good news for the local economy. With an unemployment rate of nearly 17%, Louth needs more of these announcements.
“Today’s announcement is a vote of confidence in Dundalk and the wider region.
“However, the government needs to do much more to attract such investment on a continuous basis. This includes ramping-up the delivery of broadband for the area and, as highlighted recently by executives at National Pen, it also means ensuring that employees of these companies have real housing options available to them.”
