75 jobs to go at Donegal Meats

The Donegal Meats Plant in Carrigans is to relocate its boning hall to one of the company's plants in Northern Ireland, with the loss of up to 75 jobs.

It's anticipated the move will be complete within eight weeks. Siptu's Donegal Secretary Martin O'Rourke
says this is a regretable move, as the skills of the Polish and Brazilian workers at the plant could be lost to the county, and that does not auger well for the future.
