Kenmare-Select-300x208Food processing factory Kenmare Select, which specialises in smoked salmon and other fish products is to close its doors in Co. Kerry with the loss of 25 full-time jobs.

The factory which was established in the early 1990s nformed of the decision at a meeting Wednesday morning.
Independent TD Michael Healy-Rae says the job losses in Kenmare are a devastating blow to the area.

Speaking to Radio Kerry, Deputy Healy-Rae, says he is upset for workers and management at the factory.

“I’m devastated for them because the loss of this amount of jobs in our locality – I would only compare it to loosing maybe 200 or 250 jobs in the greater Dublin area – because trying to replace these jobs is going to be very, very difficult.”
