Minister for Enterprise and Employment (Mr. R. Bruton): Information on Richard Bruton Zoom on Richard Bruton The attraction of overseas industry is a matter for day to day operations of IDA Ireland. However, I have been informed that IDA Ireland is actively looking for a replacement industry for Tipperary town following the closure of Mass Mutual. To date, three potential investors have expressed an interest and have visited the vacant plant. IDA will continue to promote the premises through its network of offices, particularly in Europe and the United States, until a suitable replacement project has been secured.
