Ongoing travel restrictions due to Covid are unlikely to have any impact on the number of people booking holidays at Center Parcs Longford Forest according to the company's CEO.
The company has today announced plans to invest €80m to develop 200 new lodges at its 400 acre site just outside Ballymahon. 300 hundred jobs will be created during the construction phase with a planning application set to be made before the end of the year.
250 additional jobs will also be created when the lodges open - with the firm confirming today that all 1,000 employees have returned after a Covid-interrupted 2020.
