A new agent manager has been appointed by the Department of Social Protection in Swinford.
Since the previous holder of this position in Swinford retired there was a delay to ensure that the service will continue in the town.
The new appointee will be opening up a brand new facility in the town for the delivery of department of social protection services such as Intreo, assistance on payments as well as a range of new services.
Mayo Fianna Fail TD Dara Calleary says this is a very welcome announcement and has paid tribute to the work put in by local councillor Michael Smyth in working on this matter.
This premises will be opened within the next six weeks or so and Deputy Calleary says its’ a great endorsement for Swinford.
