Glenisk plant workers need our support following devastating fire – Brian Stanley TD

Sinn Féin Laois-Offaly TD Brian Stanley has urged the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment to do all that his office can to support the workers and management at the Glenisk plant in Co. Offaly, following a devastating fire.

Speaking this afternoon, Deputy Stanley said:

“What happened at the factory in Glenisk is absolutely terrible news.

“Glenisk is a respected company in the Offaly community, with a long-serving staff force.

“Over 80 workers now face an uncertain future through no fault of their own.

“Glenisk, the company itself, also faces a very challenging period ahead with a significant amount of its stock and supplied destroyed.

“This business is an important local industry for the region, and it is vital that we get it back on track as soon as possible.

“I have written to the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment to request that the matter be discussed in the Dáil either today or tomorrow.

“We need to quickly outline and decide what supports we can offer to the workers, the community and to the company.”
