The Minister for State Dr. Tom Moffat turned the first sod today at DeCare International's new facility in Crossmolina.

It is hoped that the Crossmolina Facility will be up and running by the last quarter of 2002 and will eventually employ approx. 100 staff when running at full capacity.

DeCare are hoping to provide a much needed jobs boost for the area of Crossmolina and North Mayo and with the new facility they hope to build on the success of their current operation in Claremorris.
