Tralee Chamber Alliance says it is disappointed an international company has moved to Killarney.
Kieran Ruttledge was speaking after VT iDirect, a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology, announced the creation of 30 engineering jobs in Killarney.
The company had an interim base in Tralee a number of years ago when it purchased intellectual material from the now-defunct Altobridge.
Mr Ruttledge says iDirect’s decision to relocate will not affect the chamber’s confidence in attracting big businesses to Tralee in the future.
He adds while it is good to see the jobs staying in the county, it is unfortunate for the town of Tralee.
