In Castlemungret, Limerick, 70 staff are to be let go while it is understood that another 60 will lose their jobs at Platin in Meath.

A company spokesperson blamed "continuing deterioration in market conditions and a sustained decline in the demand for cement products" for the job losses.

"Discussions are to commence immediately with a view to having the necessary changes implemented later in 2010," the spokesperson said.

SIPTU's Karan O'Loughlin said the cuts came "on the back of a 30pc reduction in the workforce last year and a series of temporary lay-offs".
