Bord na Móna’s being urged to reverse its decision to let go 78 seasonal staff in the midlands.

It’s laying them off because of the temporary closure of an ESB power plant in Lanesboro, Co Longford, which it supplies.

Yesterday, Bord na Móna suspended its decision to lay off a further 70 permanent staff.
