Fifty jobs to go at Irlandus Circuits Limited

24 February, 2005

Upper Bann Sinn Féin Assembly member John O'Dowd in expressing concern about the imminent job losses at Irlandus Circuits Ltd. in Lurgan Co.Armagh, said:

"News of imminent job losses at Irlandus Circuits Ltd is cause for great concern and is yet another example of the ongoing decline in the manufacturing industry in Lurgan and all across the six counties.

"The management team at this company has done their best over the years to provide their workers with employment, however, they now find themselves in a situation where they are unable to compete with similar overseas companies.

"This is also evidence of a lack of a strategy at government level to support small indigenous business's who are unable to cope with this competition from overseas. Government must now act before we have no manufacturing industry left at all." ENDS
