The money was used to buy new machinery which will now be transferred to Ashbourne in Co Meath where the makers of Tayto and Hunky Dorys has 360 other employees.Seventy Donegal workers – of the 142 facing redundancy – are being offered positions in Meath.It’s thought that up to 15 of them will decide to move.But for employees with young families and mortgaged homes in west Donegal, such a move may prove impossible.  LARGO FOODS WILL RE-PAY GRANTS TO ÚDARAS was last modified: March 15th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:largo foodsÚdarás na Gaeltachtalast_img
