Christmas turkey jobs created
A HUGE pre-Christmas jobs boost has been announced for Co Monaghan.
Some 275 temporary jobs are to be made available at Grove Turkeys Limited at Smithboro, near Monaghan town, which has announced the capture of a €4.7m deal with Tesco to supply turkeys to the retail group's Irish and British stores.
The company was forced to make serious lay-offs in previous years because of marketing difficulties.
Grove Turkeys Limited employs 100 permanent staff.
