Clarke Group in Lisnaskea announces up to twenty jobs to go

Up to twenty full-time jobs will be lost at the Clarke Group in Lisnaskea with the closure of its timberframe division.

The company has blamed the continuing downturn in the domestic housing market for the job losses.

The other areas of the business - which also produces concrete and quarry materials - will be unaffected.

A statement from the company said that operations will be winding down over the next few months.

The Clarke Group is a family owned construction company which operates throughout Ireland and the UK.
