According to local Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris, speaking on Radio Kerry this morning, plans to locate a Global Pharmaceutical Centre of Excellence in Tralee are at a very delicate stage. He said if it comes to fruition it would create more than 4000 jobs and make it the largest centre of employment in the country.

This would be huge for the entire southwest. Lets hope it comes off.

Hope not, but I think that was said to try and prevent people from getting carried away before its actually confirmed. Looking at the details on the website it would seem that a lot of work has already gone into it.

As long as this motley bunch of lawyers, consultants & accountants don't expect the Irish state to pony up up some incentives just for them then it's all good.

It would be a wonderful development for Tralee and Kerry and the South West, but what is the concrete numbers and reason behind this proposal. Why Tralee for example and not closer to Cork which is a large pharma centre. Also using a local builder and architect for a $4.7 billion MWA - Michael Williams Associates who appears to have worked only locally on quite small schemes seems odd to me.

The company was only formed in June of this year

This has the look of someone trying to rejig some development land in the Tralee area looking for grant aid from the state to build an industrial business park.

And how do you know what work has been done behind the scenes?

Agreed, it should be welcomed and is good news if even only a fraction of it comes to fruition.

Where are they going to get €4.7 billion from and what is the scope for attracting such largescale new investments into the Irish market, which already has a developed pharma sector. Surely players already in the Irish market would choose to expand their existing sites rather than getting involved in this.

why start a centre of excellence in pharma-chem in Tralee when the one we've had in Cork for decades is closing down?

Once I saw that, I didnt need to read any further. The provies wouldnt be capable of telling the truth about anything.

True and at 1.175 Million per job it an expensive proposition.

Anyone that believes such a installation is coming to Tralee needs to have their heads examined. But, its a handy bit of lies and spin for the Adamsites.
