LAKELAND Dairies is to invest €36m in an expansion of its milk powder processing operations at Baileboro, Co Cavan and is hiring 81 people.

Construction will start immediately and a further 180 construction staff are being hired as a result of the investment.

Jobs minister Richard Bruton welcomed the move.

"The removal of milk quotas later this year offers huge opportunities that we intend to exploit in a planned and strategic way in order to support jobs growth across every region in Ireland," he said.

The investment has been supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.
