|Fine Gael Cork North Central Deputy, Dara Murphy, has welcomed the announcement by the new private healthcare company that has taken over from Quinn, Laya Healthcare, of 100 new jobs to be created in the next three years. Laya is already a significant employer in Cork, employing 343 people in Little Island in Cork.|
Deputy Murphy went on to say that a Yes vote in the Stability Treaty Referendum on 31st May will offer security not only to foreign investors who are looking at opening or expanding operations in Ireland but also to home grown, indigenous businesses hoping to invest here.
"I would like to congratulate Laya on the relaunch of what was formerly Quinn Healthcare and on its announcement today of plans for the further growth and expansion of the business into the future.
"Laya is a considerable employer in Cork North Central, employing 343 staff in Little Island. The intention of the company to open up 100 further positions in the areas of sales, customer service and claims, over the next three years signals confidence in Cork and in the future of the Irish economy.
"The importance of enhancing that confidence through a Yes vote in the Stability Treaty referendum on 31st May must continue to be conveyed to the electorate over the next number of weeks.
"Foreign and Irish investors demand a stable environment in which to do business, and a stable currency in which to deal. They look for security when considering investments and the best place to create jobs. Since this Government came to power, every effort has been expended in trying to encourage businesses to look to Ireland as an attractive location in which to operate. A Yes vote on 31st May will send out a strong signal that we take our country’s future seriously and that Ireland is a safe bet for investment."
