Medtronic gets the go ahead to expand Galway offices

Medtronic medical devices company has received permission to go ahead with an expansion to their campus in Galway city.

The development will consist of adding a two storey extension onto the rear of Building 2 in the Medtronic campus at Parkmore West Business Park.
