Fianna Fáil TD for Tipperary, Jackie Cahill has welcomed the rent 50 jobs’ announcement for Cashel by GMS Government, a major international finance organisation.

“This is fantastic news for Cashel. These are high end, well-paying jobs that have been hard to come by in counties such as Tipperary that are located away from the larger cities.

“Young graduates have been crying out for local quality jobs, and this is a very positive development for South Tipperary.

“I have in the past criticised the IDA for not ensuring FDI investment in the county, but they should be congratulated for delivering this investment, and associated jobs, to Cashel.

“Good jobs spur on the local economy through increased consumer spending.

“Jobs announcements of this nature must become the norm for Tipperary and not the exception. There are plenty of towns across the county that need similar investment and that have the skilled workers and appropriate facilities,” concluded Cahill.
