130 jobs lost as Gaeltacht agency closes

The closure of a Gaeltacht community development agency will result in the loss of 130 jobs across the country.

Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltacht offers assistance to start-up companies, organisations and groups in Gaeltacht regions.

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

Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltacht was founded 20 years ago and has workers in seven Gaeltacht regions across the country.
