14 February, 2018 - by Michaela Boyle

West Tyrone Sinn Féin MLA Michaela Boyle has welcomed the announcement of expansion plans which will see the creation of over 170 new jobs at O’Neill’s in Strabane.

Michaela Boyle said:

“A total of 172 new positions are to be created at the Strabane business. As well as the new jobs, the new development is expected to generate an additional £26.7m in sales over three years and will also help safeguard 543 current jobs within the existing Strabane facility.

“The green light given for this application at Council is a fantastic news story and will be of major economic benefit to the area.

“I would like to commend O’Neill’s for their long-term commitment to the town of Strabane. Not only are they a major employer but are also very supportive of the local community with their charity work and sponsorship.”
