CIF: Cork suffered 9,000 job losses in construction last year

15/02/2010 - 07:15:10

Nine thousand jobs have been lost in the construction industry in Cork over the last year alone.

A new report from the Construction Industry estimates that these job losses could cost the exchequer up to €162m annually in extra social welfare payments.

The data also shows that job losses were initially confined to the house building sector but have now spread to every area of the construction industry.

Apprentice registrations also dropped again in 2009.

The CIF is predicting that the current trend of job losses in the sector is set to continue for some time.

60 jobs to go in Monaghan, 30 in Tipperary

Sixty jobs are to go in Co Monaghan following the announcement today by Lakeland Dairies that it is closing its milk drying facilities at Lough Eglish near Carrickmacross.

The company says it is part of a restructuring programme and is necessary for the dairy to remain competitive.

Meanwhile, Taro Pharmaceutical Industries in Roscrea, Co Tipperary has announced the loss of 30 jobs with the ending of manufacturing operations at the plant.

Manufacturing at the sterile plant will finish by the end of March.

The company said however, that it plans to continue to keep the plant in 'good condition'.

Taro said it is no longer in its best interests to continue to incur losses at the facility or make the significant capital investments that would be required to achieve the level of operating efficiency found at its other manufacturing facilities

It said it has commenced consultations with the affected employees. It added that it believes it has sufficient inventories of products to meet all existing commitments to its customers.

Fears for up to 75 Donegal Meats jobs

Between 70 and 75 jobs are also expected to be lost at the Donegal Meats plant in Carrigans, Co Donegal.

SIPTU representatives were told yesterday that the boning plant at the factory will be closed down and staff made redundant.

The operation is to be moved across the border to other facilities owned by the parent company, the Foyle Food Group.

FORMER Fianna Fail MEP Eoin Ryan has been appointed to a €131,000 per annum key European post by Finance Minister Brian Lenihan, less than a year after he lost his seat in the European elections.

He has been named as the new Irish representative of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

The move comes a short time after Mr Ryan publicly ruled himself out of the running for the post of Lord Mayor of Dublin.

The EBRD was set up in 1991 to help build market economies in the former Soviet Bloc countries following the fall of Communism.

Mr Ryan is a former Fianna Fail senator and junior minister. He also served as an MEP for the Dublin constituency from 2004 to 2009.

He always maintained a high profile when serving in Brussels but lost his seat in last year's European elections.

A popular politician in Leinster House, Mr Ryan is a close ally of Taoiseach Brian Cowen.

The appointment was made by Mr Lenihan and was not publicly advertised.

This is the latest high-profile appointment to a European post by the Government in recent days.

Last week it was announced that Eoin O'Shea (33) had been appointed to fill Ireland's vacancy on the European Court of Auditors, the Luxembourg-based body which oversees the EU's accounts.

An accountant and barrister, he was appointed to a number of government roles in the past prior to his new position.

Mr Ryan himself was also linked to the post which became vacant when Maire Geoghegan-Quinn was made Ireland's new European commissioner.

The EBRD supports projects in 29 countries between central Europe and central Asia, investing in projects and promoting entrepreneurship which "fosters [the] transition towards open and democratic market economies", according to its website.

The bank, which is owned by 61 countries, principally invests in private companies and also supports the restructuring of state-owned firms and the improvement of municipal services.

Ireland is a founder member of the EBRD, which is based in London.

The positions of full and alternate director on the board are rotated between Ireland and Denmark.

Speculation that Mr Ryan would get the post emerged at the end of last month. The position was held in the past by former leader of the Progressive Democrats, Des O'Malley.

80 jobs go in clothes store closures



A company behind a number of well-known clothes stores is to close 14 of its outlets across the country with the loss of 80 jobs.

Bestseller Retail (Ireland) Ltd trades under four brand names - Vero Moda, Jack & Jones, Only and Name It.

Bestseller said today that the High Court had appointed an interim examiner to the company, which has been trading in Ireland since 1991 and employs 270 people in 36 outlets.

The company's general manager Lucy O'Mahoney said it was confident of emerging from court protection in a strong position. Bestseller is owned by a Danish company of the same name.

Ms O'Mahoney said the company had experienced tough trading conditions in the last two years, and this had been further undermined by increases in rents at all of its stores. She said the company would be negotiating with all its landlords during the examinership process.

The stores that are scheduled to be closed are in: Swords, north Dublin; Carlow; Waterford; Sligo; Blackpool, Cork; Douglas, Cork; Charlestown; Drogheda; Athlone and Navan.

In Athlone, the Vero Moda and Jack & Jones stores in Athlone Town Centre will close, but the Vero Moda store in the town's Golden Island Shopping Centre will remain open for business. In Drogheda, the Vero Moda and Jack & Jones stores will close but the Name It outlet in the town will continue to trade.
