He (Michael Moloney) is pressing at the moment to have industrial units built in an area of outstanding natural beauty. There is a surplus of high quality units already in the county. He says that 700 jobs are at stake. this does not make sense as there is an ida business pk on the mountrath rd which could more than cater for 700 plus. They have empty units available should any large multinationals wish to locate in laois. this man is out of control and should think about things like sewerage traffic measures and impact on local residents.
