Former workers at a building materials company in Co Cavan are continuing a demonstration over its sudden closure.

Lagan Brick announced it was ceasing its operations at its plant in Kingscourt with immediate effect three weeks ago.

Since then, its 27 former employees have mounted a protest at the factory's entrance.

 

The workers say they are deeply unhappy at how the company dealt with the sudden closure.

 

Today, Lagan Brick said it regretted the decision to close but had tried every possible avenue to retain the viability of the business.

SIPTU says it has written to Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton to investigate whether Lagan Brick contravened legislation regarding the 30 day consultation period.
