The new M17/M18 Gort to Tuam motorway is now open. The 53 kilometre stretch of motorway, costing €550 million, is a critical piece of infrastructure. It will reduce journey times for traffic travelling along the West of Ireland, and the improved connectivity will make Shannon and the West an even more compelling location for locating businesses.
The 2017 Mid-West Relocation Survey by Collins McNicholas Recruitment & HR Services Group has found that highly-qualified people — both those originally from the region and those new to the area — are being attracted in large numbers to the Mid-West and taking up enviable careers with indigenous and multinational employers.
Since Britain’s vote to leave the European Union and the trigger of Article 50, many UK-based companies are making early moves to protect their business. Some companies are actively seeking relocation, while others are considering a UK-Europe dual location strategy. Westpark provides a great option for companies interested in quick and easy access to the European Single Market.
Congratulations to Paul, Gerry and the CalQRisk team on being shortlisted for a further prestigious industry award.
