Indigenous companies in the Erris region need to be supported in order for them to grow and create employment, according to a local councilor, after confirmation last Friday that 70 jobs will be lost in the area. Monaghan Mushrooms, which is based on a farm in Belmullet, employing 70 people, confirmed that it is to close its plant later this summer and relocate back to Monaghan. While the workers are mostly foreign nationals, the majority are expected to leave the area to work in other Monaghan Mushroom plants, and this is expected to have a negative impact on the local economy.
