“Half of those 75 jobs are going to be based in Tipperary Town and this is really significant because it shows the potential that we all believe Tipp Town has.”

“It shows the faith and the belief that the company has in the region in terms of employment. Also in terms of its geographical base – in a very good location so close to Limerick city and also close to Shannon airport and to the main Cork – Dublin road.”

“So this is a really significant day for the town and the community.”
