NEVER HAVE WE felt as sad about machinery sitting out in a yard.
This was the scene at the Oatfield sweet factory in Letterkenny, Co Donegal this morning as sweet-making machines were removed from the building in anticipation of production at the factory coming to an end.
The traditional Irish sweets, including Emerald caramels and Chocolate Orange boiled sweets, have been produced in Donegal since 1927. Sadly, last month TheJournal.ie reported that 15 jobs were to be lost as production is being moved to the UK.
