Errigal Contracts, the construction firm, is investing €7.5 million in its own training academy programme amid a shortage of skilled labour in recent years.

The Monaghan-based building firm specialises in partition systems, external facade, recladding, interior fitout and ceilings.

It has called on the Irish government to direct more funding into training construction specialists and has set up an academy following to offer apprenticeship and undergraduate programmes.
