Udaras in disusssion with insurance company
Údarás na Gaeltachta has confirmed that discussions are currently taking place with an insurance company about new investment in Dingle and the possible creation of up to 20 jobs. It follows an announcement by Ceann Comhairle John O'Donoghue of Fianna Fail that twenty jobs are to be created in at the Udaras na Gaeltachta offices at Baile an Mhuilinn, Dingle. Udaras member and Fine Gael Councillor Seamus Cosai Fitzgerald said the announcement was premature and could damage negotiations with the company. Údarás says it's in talks with insurance brokers McGivern Flynn and Company Limited about plans to establish a new operations in Dingle and It's hoping to make a proposal to its Board within the next three or four months on the venture. The last major outfit to come to Dingle were call-centre Contact 4 which resulted in immense job losses when the Scottish parent company pulled out of Ireland last year. Reports suggested they had received up to three million in grant-aid to come to Dingle. Offices were also upgraded and the facility and a new car-park created.
