Connect Ireland “making steady progress”

Terry Clune, chairman of Connect Ireland, says the economic development group is “making steady progress … creating jobs and giving communities a lifeline.”

The Kilkenney-based organization reaches its second anniversary next month. Irish America profiled Clune in its October/November issue.

“To date, we’ve brought close to 20 companies to Ireland and the outlook for 2014 is really promising,” Clune told supporters in a Feb. 5 email. “Our target of bringing 5,000 jobs to Ireland remains our key focus.”

He promised “details of a number of very significant jobs announcements are imminent.”
