30 new jobs for Killybegs

Donegal Fish is to create 30 new jobs at its facility in Killybegs after securing major funding from the Brexit Adjustment Reserve.


The family business is one of 44 projects to share in a €26.8 million investment from the Seafood Processing Capital Support Scheme.


The scheme, which will deliver up to €45 million in funding to the seafood processing sector, is funded by the European Union under the Brexit Adjustment Reserve.


Donegal Fish will use automation and technology, along with a newly skilled workforce, to process and add value to raw materials on-site at a state-of-the-art facility.


Fish such as mackerel and horse mackerel will be defrosted, filleted, pin-boned, portioned, dipped or salt brined, individually frozen and packaged for the consumer retail market for export abroad.
