130 Jobs Announced, 130 Jobs Lost

A total of 130 jobs have been announced at a new nursing home in Dublin.

The Cara Care centre is being built in Northwood Park in Santry, in a €12m investment from the TLC group.

It is expected to open at the end of the month. Recruitment is underway for a range of positions at the centre, including nurses, care assistants and administrators.

Meanwhile 130 jobs have been lost across the country with the closure of Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltacht (MFG).

The company has been in existence for more than 20 years and offers assistance to many start-up companies, organisations and groups in the Gaeltacht regions.

Staff at the firm will meet with management this morning to find out the reason for the closure.

Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltach has workers in seven Gaeltacht regions across the country.
