Several branches of the store featured in towns across the Shannonsid region.

Carphone Warehouse has closed in Ireland with a loss of around 400 jobs.

The company says it is due to a change in consumer habits.

Around 80 Carphone Warehouse stores have closed immediately, while some staff will be kept on by the company over the next couple of days for operational reasons.

Stores operated in this region include Longford, Roscommon,  Carrick on Shannon and two stores in Athlone.

The business says it expected a change in consumer habits with people buying phones less frequently - however it expected it to occur over a long period of time with the change attributed to the pandemic.

The firm's parent company says they'll also continue selling phones and accessories through Currys PC World. Carphone Warehouse had closed its stores in the UK last year.
