Statement by Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Simon Coveney TD on Wyeth announcement

My first thoughts are with the Wyeth workers and their families as they received this news this afternoon.

It is hugely disappointing news as this facility has provided fantastic employment in Limerick and made a huge contribution to Ireland’s economy.

Officials in my department will now begin a process of engagement with the management and workers in the company.

The full range of state supports will be made available to the employees, and we will examine each and every option to ensure that the best possible outcome is reached for all concerned.
