An Taoiseach Enda Kenny opened the Lafferty Group's new offices in Westport where 19 people are currently employed earlier this week.
The Lafferty Group is a provider of professional education and training to the global retail banking sector. The company also provides financial services research and publications, including research databases and online research tools. The Taoiseach said: “I want to congratulate Michael and all his staff. That they are now moving into new offices is testament to the hard work of the Lafferty Group and their employees here in Westport.
“The Lafferty Group have now positioned themselves as being at the forefront of market intelligence, and research and the fact that a high performance company like this has seen such success shows that anywhere in Ireland is capable of competing in the global market. They have shown that it is possible for businesses like the Lafferty Group to create highly skilled jobs here in Ireland and to thrive. I wish them continued success."
