He's been making his first post-pandemic visit to the county today.

The Tánaiste says he's keen to get more jobs and investment into Laois.

In his first post-pandemic visit to the county, Leo Varadkar re-iterated his interest in developing local remote working opportunities.

The Enterprise Minister is in Portlaoise to visit Canadian company Greenfield Global - which he says is considering expanding its IDA Park facility.

He says accelerating broadband roll-out will help counties like Laois thrive:

Mr. Varadkar was in Laois on the invitation of his party colleague, Laois-Offaly TD Charlie Flanagan.

He'll also be paying a site visit to the Glanbia cheese factory and attending today's Fine Gael parliamentary party via the remote-working hub in Mountmellick.
