A LOCAL company that is providing 100 jobs recently hosted Mayor of Fingal Cllr David O’Connor and other guests so they could see first hand its new venture at Terminal One, Dublin Airport.

Marqette, a new food market and bar, opened its doors last September and has been warmly received with over 200,000 customers passing through its doors to date.  

Chief executive of Fingal County Council Paul Reid, President of the Fingal Dublin Chamber of Commerce Siobhan Kinsella, Head of External Communications at DAA Siobhán O’Donnell and Michael Wright, Director, Marqette, welcomed the Mayor and other guests.   

Mayor O’Connor said the creation of 100 new jobs by Marqette is fantastic news for Fingal and a boost to the reputation of the county as a growing hub for new companies. 

“It is companies like Marqette that are leading the charge in Ireland’s recovery,” he said. “Creating jobs at home, especially at a local level, promotes business confidence within the Fingal region.”  

Mr Reid said: “We are delighted that a company such as Marqette has such a significant presence at the airport, employing many people and demonstrating confidence in Fingal as a location to invest in and do business.

Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said: “Not only is Marqette contributing to the local economy by employing people from neighbouring areas, it is also expected to generate more than €4.25 million worth of annual sales for the agri-business sector and food producers in north county Dublin by using locally sourced produce.” 

Ms Kinsella said it is fantastic to welcome this quality business investment in Fingal. 

“The quality offering of Marqette adds to the attractiveness of the offering of our international airport and also to good quality sustainable employment in the area,” she said.  

Michael Wright paid tribute to the talent and drive of the business community in the Fingal Dublin Region. 

“A key element of Ireland’s strategy is to grow indigenous Irish companies on a local level,” he said. “Marqette is a great example of a highly innovative Irish company that is recognised for its excellent customer services.”
