No Strabane jobs fair due to lack of vacancies

Plans to bring a jobs fair to  Strabane have had to be shelved because there are not enough vacancies in the area to justify the event.

Strabane has the highest unemployment rate in the north and last year a total of 800 people applied for 400 posts at the jobs fair.

But Strabane Councillor, Eugene McMennamin, says while it's disappointing that there will be no jobs fair in the town this year, he does believe things are looking up for the town.
