Former Taoiseach Enda Kenny was on hand this week as PwC completed the relocation of its Galway office to new city centre state-of-the-art premises at One Galway Central.

The move is part of PwC’s national ambitious growth strategy – with plans to more than double its workforce to 70 people over the next two years.

Deputy Kenny told guests that Galway and the West were very important for Ireland’s continued economic growth and job opportunities.

“As part of our National Planning Framework – Ireland 2040 – developing a strong regional economy will be critical to our national economic success,” he said.

“I’m delighted that the development of the M18 motorway has created a gateway to the entire Western region opening up new employment and investment opportunities.

“And with a highly talented skills’ pool, we can see this new investment right here in Galway with multinationals, including medtech, and technology companies as well as SMEs, establishing in the region. It is great to see organisations such as PwC helping drive this success,” he added.

PwC Ireland Managing Partner Feargal O’Rourke, said that Galway and the West were ‘a strategic element of the firm’s ambitious growth strategy’.
