Dalata Hotel Group CEO Pat McCann has said that the company is still planning to expand in Ireland and the UK, despite disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
"A Relentless Optimist"
The Irish Independent quotes McCann as saying, "We are planning for six months' disruption and beyond. Looking towards March or April is too short a time-span. This will end and we will come out of it, but it's a case of how long it will take.
"We are continuing with our expansion plans in Ireland and the UK, and we have retained Deloitte to look further afield in Europe. I am a relentless optimist."
