Heron Bros. Dept. Managing Director Martin O’Kane recently supported the Sports Minister Carál Ní Chuilín at a recent conference at Coláiste Feirste in the Gaeltacht Quarter, Belfast. The conference outlined how the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure is delivering social clauses and underpinned Heron Bros. commitment in driving Social Clauses forward and ensuring they are achieved in all our projects.

Speaking at the conference the Minister said: “Investment in the regional stadium programme provided my department with the opportunity to deliver maximum benefits from social clauses.”
