The new multi-purpose education campus being provided at the site of the former Monaghan Military Barracks at Knockaconny outside Monaghan Town will provide a huge employment boost for Co Monaghan, Chief Executive Officer of Co Monaghan Vocational Education Committee Martin G O’Brien said this week.
Mr O’Brien told Monday’s meeting of Co Monaghan Vocational Education Committee that between 500-600 jobs would be facilitated during the building period of the project, while 200 people would be employed there going forward.
The CEO stated that the VEC expected to be on site to commence work on the development in September. The quantity surveyor was processing the winning tender at present and a September commencement date was anticipated. The project would take 15 months to construct, he added.
South Monaghan Committee member P J O’Hanlon said that in the current economic climate he was proud to be associated with the project, and wanted to compliment everyone involved in relation to the great work they had done.
Colr O’Hanlon complimented the CEO and the VEC staff, stating that the amount of work going on in Co Monaghan VEC was second to none.
“The benefits to Monaghan Town and the county from the new education project are going to be enormous,” he predicted.
