LOCAL Fine Gael TD’s Charlie Flanagan & Marcella Corcoran-Kennedy (both Laois/Offaly) and Nicky McFadden (Longford/Westmeath) met with Gabriel D’Arcy, CEO and Pat Downes, Director or Bord na Móna last Thursday in the Dáil to discuss the company’s current projects in the region.

Deputy Flanagan, who arranged the meeting, stated, “Bord na Móna is a huge employer and a very significant player in the Midlands region and I work closely with the company on local issues. However, I believed it was appropriate for senior Bord na Móna officials to visit the Dáil to give my local colleagues and I a formal briefing on the company’s current projects and future plans.

“I am pleased that future Bord na Móna projects are set to deliver significant employment opportunities in the Midlands in keeping with the company’s record and Marcella, Nicky and I look forward to playing our part in ensuring that the right climate is created by Government to allow Bord na Móna to continue to flourish.”
