All the recent news from the Killarney based Liebherr Container Cranes and its 900 strong work force is anything but good.
The firm has drawn a huge number of that workforce from this region and from a huge hinterland around its base in Fossa outside Killarney.
Statement from Danny Healy Rae, TD.
Deputy Danny Healy Rae expressed his concern in a statement about the future of the firm and its workforce this morning.
“I’m very concerned about what is happening in Liebherr at the moment as it will have an adverse impact on many of their workers in Killarney, throughout Kerry and Cork,” said Deputy Healy Rae.
Young Families and Mortgages
“Many of these employees have young families and mortgages and we hope that the company can rise from this dip in their fortunes.
“Over €80 million is being spent on developing the Port of Cork in Ringaskiddy and two new cranes are needed.
Consideration for Liebherr
“I hope that Liebherr Cranes will get the utmost consideration for the provision of these two cranes. “Liebherr, with their base in Killarney, is the nearest crane manufacturer and should get priority consideration,” Deputy Healy Rae concluded.
