Speaking following the announcement, Mr Ó hEára said; 

 

“This is welcome news. The fact that almost all of the firms involved in this announcement are well-established local companies demonstrates the entrepreneurial skills and ambitions of the local business community.

 

 “The fact these jobs are being created across such a diverse range of industries also identifies the wealth and variety of skills available in the local workforce.

 

“I congratulate all seven companies on their ambition and confidence in their local community shown by this investment.

 

“Sinn Féin believes if we are to transform the economic environment in the north west we must become a more resilient and self-reliant economy, while simultaneously creating the environment to attract inward investment. 

“Today’s announcement shows that, that spirit is alive and well within the local business community.” CRÍOCH/END
