Donegal North East TD Charlie McConalogue has said that the news that Flanagan’s furniture has gone into liquidation comes as a devastating blow to Buncrana and the wider Inishowen community.
Deputy McConalogue was speaking after Flanagan’s closed its doors late last week with the potential loss of up to 50 jobs.
The local Fianna Fáil said: “Flanagan’s has a long-standing reputation for quality and excellence in the furniture business. The company has been a strong employer both in Buncrana and in their other locations throughout the country. Their team of craftsmen are renowned for high quality restoration work which has stood the test of time, along with their wider retail business.
“My thoughts today are with the Flanagan family and their staff. As a local representative I will give every possible support I can to the company and its employees at this difficult time.”
