Mac Lochlainn welcomes 330 jobs for Letterkenny
Sinn Féin TD for Donegal North East Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has welcomed the news that Pramerica is to create 330 new jobs in Letterkenny.
Speaking after attending the press conference on the announcement this morning, Deputy Mac Lochlainn said:
“This is a great day for the people of Donegal and the North West. I am delighted at the news and welcome the fact that Pramerica, a respected employer in the region for many years, have again realised the potential that Letterkenny has to offer and decided to expand their operation.
“I also strongly commend the partnership model that has been developed between Letterkenny IT and Pramerica, which is helping to develop business capacity and matches the skills of the local workforce to the company. This has been acknowledged by the senior company management as being vital to their ongoing success and it is something that other companies should aim to develop.
“This news is a welcome relief and opportunity for many families and individuals in the area who have been hit hard during the economic crisis. These jobs are a huge boost for the local economy and I wish Pramerica the best for the future.”
