McNamara receives update on Shannon Heritage and new Shannon Group Chair

Clare Independent T.D. Michael McNamara says a new Chair of Shannon Group will be appointed imminently while Government also plans to review Shannon Heritage’s position with the Group.

“In a meeting today with Transport Minister Eamon Ryan and Minister of State for International and Road Transport Hildegarde Naughton I was informed that the appointment of a new Chair of Shannon Group plc is imminent,” stated Deputy McNamara.

He continued, “A commitment was given to me that a review the future of Shannon Heritage’s position within that group will be undertaken in conjunction with the new Chair.”

“I also raised the precarious position of Shannon Heritage staff whose positions have been transformed into seasonal jobs yet can’t avail of redundancy,” added Deputy McNamara.
