A Clondalkin councillor has said that local employment should be central to a South Dublin County Council disposal agreement with Novo Nordisk Production Ireland Ltd., writes Rachel Cunningham.

“South Dublin County Council has agreed to dispose of 85 acres to Novo Nordisk Production Ireland Ltd. for construction of a Pharmaceutical Plant for medical products for diabetes, obesity and rare diseases,” said Councillor Trevor Gilligan.

 “Local employment must be paramount as part of this project, not just during the construction and development phase, but long-term for both Novo and SDCC.

“There is a lot of local talent here in the Clondalkin, Newcastle and the surrounding areas. We have highly skilled and trained individuals and I hope to see them get involved in this project as early as possible.

“I would also ask that at least 10 to 20 per cent of the €51 million is ringfenced for investment into the local area, towards community, education and skills development,” he added.
