Sinn Féin Louth TD and Party President Gerry Adams has called on the government to make every effort to secure almost 700 jobs in Elverys Sports, including those in its two stores in Dundalk and Drogheda.
Teachta Adams said:
“Elverys Sports is currently in Examinership. The Examiner, Mr Simon Coyle of Mazars, has stated that his aim is ‘to protect the business at all costs with a particular focus on job security.’
“This must be the government’s aim also and every support possible should be provided to encourage a new owner to retain the existing numbers of jobs under their current terms and conditions of employment.
“Elverys is a long established, efficient and well run business. It has a management team that is committed to the business and to its future.”
