100 jobs saved in shopping centre

ALMOST 100 jobs have been saved in a shopping centre after the landlord company agreed to lower its rent.

Six out of seven clothing stores belonging to the British retail giant Arcadia Group will now continue trading following negotiations with Green Property Ltd -- the managers of the Blanchardstown Centre in west Dublin.

Elsewhere yesterday, 25 care-worker jobs based in south Dublin were announced by Holyban Ltd.

Some 35 new jobs were also announced yesterday in Gort, Co Galway, by the medical device firm CareFusion.

Another 1,600 people joined the live register in August.
