Frank O'Rourke celbridgeSpeaking about the new jobs investment for Celbridge, Cllr Frank O’Rourke stated that “it is great news for Celbridge and Kildare with 250 New Jobs been delivered by Rye River Brewery. 150 of these will be permanent jobs with another 100 created during construction work. Congrats to Niall, Alan, Tom and all involved with this wonderful announcement. I am delighted to have engaged with Rye River and worked along side them to make sure the jobs stayed in Kildare after they announced that they were moving from Kilcock. They had offers to attract them away from Kildare.”

“I have known the lads and all involved for months now and it is a privilege for me to have assisted them to make sure that this “Great News” story was a Celbridge one..!! They will be re-locating to Celbridge and continuing to brew, while extending their work force and developing a visitors centre and much more.”

“This will continue to put Celbridge firmly on the map as a place to visit in Kildare. Their plans once completed and in place will compliment all that is already good in Celbridge and the surrounding area for tourism, jobs and the local economy. I am delighted that through the commitment of Rye River Brewery, Kildare County Council Staff and Management which worked closely with me that this business will continue to exist, develop and grow for the benefit of all in Celbridge, the surrounding area and Kildare.”
