Today we saw 3 announcements in the media resulting in a net positive of 260 jobs! Pfizer have today announced its decision to reverse their previous plans to close their manufacturing facility in Little Island, Cork. The move has meant that the 160 jobs that were due to go are now safe. The decision to reverse the plans was as a result of an increase in the demand for the products manufactured at the site. For the full article on the preservation of 160 jobs in Cork see the Irish Times.

Carraig Donn, Ireland’s biggest knitwear manufacturing plant, has announced their intention to create 30 jobs in Westport, Co. Mayo.
