McDonald addresses meeting of Quinn employees in Blanchardstown

19 April, 2010


Speaking at a meeting of Quinn Insurance workers in Blanchardstown this evening Sinn Féin Vice President Mary Lou McDonald has the administration process at the company must prioritise the maintenance of jobs and their viability into the future.

Ms. McDonald said:

“Quinn Insurance and the Quinn group in general are major employers in Ireland. We are currently in the midst of a jobs crisis and the Government has its head in the sand on the issue.

“We cannot afford anymore job losses and therefore the administration process at Quinn Insurance must priorities the maintenance of jobs and their viability into the future.

“There is huge dependence on this employment, not least here in Blanchardstown 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
