Former Debenham's workers in Tralee have described the Government's proposed €3 million training fund, aimed at ending their eight month protest, as an insult.

Last April Debenhams announced it was shutting its 11 Irish stores - including its branch in Tralee - with the loss of 2,000 jobs nationwide and 150 in Tralee.
