West Cork Bottling jobs blow for Skibbereen

DRINKS distribution company West Cork Bottling, based at Market Street, Skibbereen, is to close at the end of April with the loss of seventeen jobs, staff were informed today.

This is a significant blow, not just for the staff, but for a town the size of Skibbereen. It is understood that two sales representatives will be retained.

Originally run for many years by Mr Gerry Donovan, who built up a lucrative beer, stout and ale wholesale business, he sold the company in October, 1998 to Murphy Brewery Ireland, which is owned by Dutch company Heineken.
