A total of fifty-six jobs are to go at Desmonds Textile company. The firm plans to reduce employment in its lightwear division factory at Claudy and close a cutting room in Drumahoe. The move follows the closure of the company's factories at Magherafelt in County Londonderry and Enniskillen in County Fermanagh over the past two years. Management of Desmonds informed workers at both plants last Thursday and met with unions to discuss their plans.
