Flynns Fine Foods in Rosslea, County Fermanagh, closing

Forty jobs are being lost with the closure of a food company in County Fermanagh.

Staff at Flynns Fine Foods in Rosslea were told it was closing with immediate effect on Thursday.

The company was founded by Micheal Flynn Snr in 1978 and supplied food to some of the main supermarkets in the UK and Ireland.

The administrators said the company had experienced a deterioration in trading over recent months.

In a statement, Gregg Sterritt and Stephen Armstrong of Belfast-based accountancy and consultancy firm RSM McClure Watters said this had caused significant cashflow pressures.

"These pressures ultimately led to the company ceasing to trade prior to the appointment of the administrators.

"Due to the trading position of the company the administrators regret that there was no alternative but to make the company's 40 employees redundant on 5 September 2013."
