We have been very dependent on food processing in west Limerick and I concede that there have been difficulties throughout Ireland's chicken processing industry, although not to the same extent as in Castlemahon. This news has not come as a surprise to me since closure has been threatened for some time. While people were devastated when the final announcement was made, I have taken the opportunity over the past few months to keep the Minister and his counterpart in the Department of Agriculture and Food briefed.
