WORKERS at the Target Express depot in Limerick have been briefed by representatives of the provisional liquidators who have been appointed to the company.

Last night, the High Court appointed Michael McAteer and Stephen Tennant of Grant Thornton as Provisional Liquidators of College Freight Limited, trading as Target Express.

The company ceased operations on Monday with the loss of almost 400 jobs across the country.

Martin Lydon, 38, who worked as a driver with the company for ten years, attended this morning’s meeting. “We haven’t been told anything that we didn’t know already and we have been given a form to sign,” he said afterwards.

“He just told us we could be waiting for anything between three and six months to get any money from the company. Basically we are all depressed and it is hard to sum it all up,” he added.

Sinn Fein councillor Maurice Quinlivan met with the former workers at the Ballysimon depot this morning and Minister Jan O’Sullivan is due to meet them this afternoon.
