Center Parcs has announced the appointment of Daragh Feighery as the first general manager of Center Parcs Longford Forest, near Ballymahon, County Longford.
Mr Feighery becomes the company’s first employee in Ireland and will fill the most senior role at Center Parcs Longford Forest. He joins Center Parcs from Aramark Ireland, where he has been operations director for Northern Europe since 2006.
He currently lives in County Kildare and is married with four children. In his spare time he plays an active role in the local GAA club, Lucan Sarsfields.
Daragh Feighery said: “I am extremely excited to join the Center Parcs team and look forward to what will be a fantastic opportunity for families like my own to enjoy a unique family break in Ireland. I believe my experience, skills, and beliefs will be a great match in the role of general manager in Center Parcs Longford Forest. I also look forward to working closely with the local community in what is a very positive and exciting time for Longford and the wider midlands community.”
Mr Feighery will officially join Center Parcs on May 29 and will spend much of the next 15 to 18 months working in the United Kingdom to fully understand the Center Parcs business before returning to Ireland in time for the start of the main recruitment campaign and opening of the Longford Forest complex in 2019.
