Niall Phelan, who co-founded craft brewer Rye River, has been appointed as chief operating officer of a Canadian brewer of cannabis beers that plans to begin selling its products in the Irish market early next year.

Mr Phelan has joined Toronto outfit Province Brands, which is hoping to raise up to €70 million by the end of the year to fund its commercial launch in Canada, the United States and Europe.

He says it is considering Ireland for its European headquarters and for a manufacturing facility, and is seeking exploratory talks with State agency, IDA Ireland.

Ireland is also one of five European sale markets Province is targeting to launch some of its beers in the first quarter of 2020, despite the legal grey area that surrounds the sale of certain cannabis-linked products here.
