Councillor accuses IDA of giving up on Offaly
16th October 2018
THE IDA was accused this week of giving up on Offaly.
“I've heard it all before,” Cllr Tony McCormack remarked after being told of the State development authority's efforts to attract more foreign investment to the Midlands.
Cllr McCormack said not enough site visits by potential investors were taking place to Tullamore and “every excuse under the sun” had been made when companies opened up in other locations.
Denis Curran, IDA divisional manager, said when foreign companies were flying up to 10,000 miles for site visits they could not be confined to just one location in Ireland.
