Supermac's founder Pat McDonagh has warned of a "fear factor" among employers over Covid-19 personal injury claims and predicts insurance premiums are going to rise even further.

Mr McDonagh will today announce the creation of 120 jobs in Co Laois with the opening of the Portlaoise Plaza on Friday.

At a time when job losses and company closures are dominating the news, he says investing in local business has never been more important.
