Buried deep underneath the Thanksgiving feel good news stories — here in the US, is a less sunny one, for my cousins on the Emerald Isle — in Dublin. Swords is a legacy Organon facility — and thus is also a legacy Schering-Plough facility.
Here is the Irish Independent.ie story on it — do go read it all:
. . . .The factory, which employs 570 people, is the second to be closed here by the company, once called Merck Sharp & Dohme, this year as the global drugmaker shifts operations to the Netherlands, Belgium and the US. . . .
Around 130 staff will be made redundant in six months’ time and the remainder will be “phased out” over three years. . . .
My thoughts, prayers and meditations are with you, at Swords. We send positive energy your way.
