The job that I do is highly specialised and the skills that I am required to have to do my job can only be acquired in our restaurant. However, by taking a job in McDonald's you are opening a career path to use those skills anywhere - the skills you acquire are very transferable.

Good news for Roscommon on the jobs front

It is reported this morning that up to 300 jobs could be on the way at a new pharmaceutical facility in County Roscommon. 100 construction jobs will also be created.

The PriMe 6 development which is located just outside Athlone could see seven drug companies sharing a state-of-the-art 'clean room,' while also having their own facilities. Roscommon TD and Communications Minister Denis Naughten said the development is a unique prospect for any drug company looking to expand into the EU.

Speaking on Newstalk FM this morning, Roscommon TD and Communications Minister Denis Naughten said the development is a unique prospect for any drug company looking to expand into the EU.

The pharmaceutical and Biopharma industry is perhaps Ireland’s most valuable and most stable sector, attracting some of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies.

Nine of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies worldwide are located in Ireland and five of the top 12 selling drugs are produced here. Ireland has also become the world’s largest net exporter of pharmaceuticals worldwide.
