Independent TD Mattie McGrath has called on Minister of State Tom Hayes to engage with the staff and management of Dawn Fresh Foods in Fethard to try and reverse the savage job losses which were announced at the food processing plant.

“We cannot listen to the usual political platitudes of taskforces, we need direct intervention at the highest level so that this proud indigenous company can have the necessary breathing space to try and recover from the impact of the horsemeat scandal. I remain hopeful that with political will we minimise the extent of the loss. Dawn is one of the leading employers in the area and it would be fair to say as SIPTU have already noted that these potential job losses are akin to those lost at Dell or Waterford Crystal in terms of the impact they will have on the community,” he said.
