Deputy Eamon Gilmore Deputy Eamon Gilmore
Deputy Eamon Gilmore asked the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs the progress made in his work with State agencies to try to reduce the impact of the loss of 104 jobs (details supplied). [12490/08]
Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív
Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív: I understand from Údarás na Gaeltachta that it is actively seeking to minimise the impact of the recent job losses referred to by the Deputy.
The appointment by an tÚdarás on 11 March 2008 of a Receiver/Manager to the relevant companies involved has secured the premises, which were leased to these companies, as well as their assets.
An tÚdarás, in co-operation with the Receiver/Manager, is actively marketing these facilities to a number of interested parties, both directly and through the offices of the Industrial Development Authority, Ireland.
The Deputy will appreciate that it would not be appropriate to reveal specific details of any discussions taking place at this point in time.
