42 jobs under threat at Flanagan's Furniture

Forty-two jobs at a Donegal furniture company are under threat after it unexpectedly closed its doors.

Buncrana-based Flanagan's Furniture owns five stores and workshops across Ireland.

Owner Brian Flanagan confirmed the shops are all closed, and said the firm is now involved in negotiations.

The mayor of Buncrana, Nicholas Crossan, said it was a devastating blow for the town.

"There are 20 plus workers in the Buncrana plant who would upholster furniture and reproduce antique furniture and make nice new furniture, plus there are retail workers and van drivers."
