Patrick Benn from Clenn Construction said: “We’re delighted to be able to work with Limerick City and County Council to set up a base in Limerick. One of the reasons we chose Limerick was because one of the founders of the company was from the city before emigrating to America.”

“Clenn Construction is an expert in this sector and we will be hoping to replicate our success here in Limerick. We are hiring people with a range of skills, initially 50 people, but this will grow as we expand into the Irish and European markets.”
The investment follows a series of meetings and negotiations between Limerick City and County Council and the company, which were initiated during a council delegation to Boston last year, led by the then mayor Kieran O’Hanlon.

Dr. Pat Daly, Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Economic Development with Limerick City and County Council said: “The confirmation of these jobs show our commitment to helping to secure investment and job opportunities for the people of Limerick. By locating these jobs in the heart of one of Limerick’s regeneration areas, it also highlights our commitment to improving the economic fortunes of the south side of the city.”

Carmel Kirby Director of Social Development with Limerick City and County Council said: “We’re particularly delighted that private sector companies are choosing Glavine Industrial Estate as the location for investment. It shows that Limerick continues to reverberate with international companies as the ideal location for businesses to expand and attract the right talent to facilitate their needs.”

“Continuing to engage with private sector employers, focusing on projects of scale, and citywide catalysts for economic development, aligned with the Limerick 2030 strategy, is one of the key recommendations of the Limerick Regeneration Implementation Framework Plan, with Limerick City and County Council actively pursuing prospective employers for the region.”

Sean McGlynn, Regeneration Programme Manager with Limerick City and County Council added: “This announcement will have a direct impact on communities in the Southside, raising the economic profile of the area. We already have a collective partnership approach to training, skills development, and job creation, with Limerick City and County Council working closely with all stakeholders in the region, and this has resulted in a new wave of economic momentum for the city.”
