That's two separate companies in Castlebar and I don't blame them for not making an 'Announcement' because a) the exact number ultimately filled may be more or less than the announced number and b) they will become the target of the kind of whinging that goes on here.
Just let them get on with business and creating jobs. It's easy enough to check the jobless rate in Mayo and it will show that fewer and fewer are unemployed. If you want to check against emigration numbers too those numbers are also available. So it is important to look at the numbers as opposed to sentiment. My experience of Castlebar at the moment is that it is one big bustling traffic jam - a big contrast to 4 or 5 years ago.
