Planning permission has been granted by Kerry County Council for a major pharmaceutical development in Tralee by Astellas, a Japanese pharmaceutical company that already has a base in Killorglin.

The facility, which it is hoped will begin construction in 2024, will be based on the IDA’s greenfield site in Kerry Technology Park. Read the full story here.
