Jobs must be protected as Quinn Insurance goes into administration – Ó Caoláin

31 March, 2010 - by Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD


Commenting on the appointment of administrators to Quinn Insurance Sinn Féin Dáil leader and Cavan-Monaghan TD Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin said:

“Quinn Insurance and the Quinn group in general are major employers in the Border region and across Ireland and there is real concern for the future of thousands of jobs as Quinn Insurance goes into administration.

“I raised with the Minister for Finance in the Dáil today the need to safeguard jobs. There are 2,800 employees of Quinn Insurance in Cavan, Enniskillen, Navan, Dublin, Cork and also in Manchester.

“The administration process needs to prioritise the maintenance of jobs and their viability into the future. There is huge dependence on this employment, especially in the Border region where other opportunities are so limited. The Minister for Finance and the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Innovation need to keep closely in touch with this situation." ENDS
