The Cabinet meets in Cork today as part of the Taoiseach’s pledge to hold special meetings across the country.
Leo Varadkar and his Ministers will discuss Brexit and health during the session
A national innovation food hub to be based in Cork will also be announced by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Agriculture Minister Michael Creed.
The Taoiseach will also emphasise the need to create 80,000 jobs and 60,000 homes in Cork City by 2040, future projects, and a desire to reverse a decline in the city’s population.
The national food hub will help create new products and feed into the agri-food sector, third-level research, and help diversify Irish goods in advance of Brexit. Building on the state-of the-art facility will commence next year at a cost of €2m, while €9m will be pumped into the centre.
