P45s are being handed out at one of Carlow’s biggest employers today.

Receivers were appointed for the second time last week.

There had been some hope the company could be saved in a 40-day period of examinership but the examiner’s plans to try and save the company were rejected.

Staff at the Quarryoffices are being given advice today on how to access social welfare.
