There may be local job opportunities in the future after terms have been agreed to purchase the former Green Isle factory in Boyle.
Fine Gael Deputy, Frank Feighan said, “This is very positive news for the town and I understand that a similar line of business is being developed for the factory.
“Significantly, the jobs prospects for the town and surrounding areas is very good and I expect further information in the future on the exact developments for the former breading factory, which closed in 2006 with the loss of more than 100 jobs.”
There have been ongoing efforts to promote the facility to suitable investors.
Last February, Junior Minister John Perry and Enterprise Ireland Director, Barry Egan met with a local delegation in Boyle to explore ways of attracting potential investors to develop the factory.
Deputy Frank Feighan concluded saying, “I’m delighted that plans for the factory have now progressed and it has always been the case that Boyle has much to offer investors, including good road and air links and renowned natural scenery and heritage.”
The former Green Isle Foods factory in Boyle was a fish breading facility, the company was the same business that produces Donegal Catch.
It has not been released when the new company will open the facility.
