An announcement on the creation of an employment taskforce in North Kerry will be given shortly.
Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar was asked about the establishment of a taskforce for the Shannon Estuary by party colleague Deputy Brendan Griffin.
Last year, following the rejection of the Shannon LNG project in the Programme for Government, it was said a taskforce to create employment in North Kerry would be established by early in 2021.
Deputy Government Chief Whip Brendan Griffin asked Minister Varadkar on the status of the taskforce in recent days.
The Tánaiste said he understands the importance of this Programme for Government commitment for the Shannon Estuary and surrounding areas.
He added terms of reference for the taskforce are being finalised and he hopes to make an announcement shortly.
