The company says 124 jobs will be cut from the frozen goods section of Gallagher’s Bakery in Ardara.

Employees were told today in a meeting with management.

Fine Gael TD for Donegal South West Dinny McGinley described the job losses as “nothing short of an economic tragedy for the area”.

Cuisine de France is owned by major Swiss food producer Aryzta.
