23 October, 2018 - by Maurice Quinlivan TD


Sinn Fein Jobs spokesperson Maurice Quinlivan TD has called on the Government and Enterprise Agencies to direct resources into sourcing jobs for the areas affected by the Bord na Móna job losses announced today.

Teachta Quinlivan was speaking today after Bord na Móna announced 150 job losses before Easter next year and 850 job losses over the next ten years.

The Limerick City TD said;

“The reality is that these are jobs that will very likely be hard to replace due to the industry and the fact that most of the jobs are in rural Ireland.

“These are very worrying times for the workers affected by this news and their families.

“It is important that the Government and the Enterprise Agencies direct the necessary resources into the areas affected by these job losses and make serious efforts to introduce new jobs to these areas.”
