Bray People - - News - Mary FOG­A­RTY

RU­MOURS that com­puter gi­ant and lo­cal em­ployer Dell is to leave Ire­land al­to­gether have been dis­missed by De­fence min­is­ter Wil­lie O’Dea, who said that it was a ‘to­tal lie’.

The story, which stirred fears amongst lo­cal em­ploy­ees of Dell, was pub­lished last week by a Sun­day news­pa­per, which has been ac­cused by Min­is­ter O’Dea of spread­ing panic and fear.

Dell, based at nearby Cher­ry­wood, for­merly based in Bray, em­ploys around 1,300 peo­ple, many of whom live in Co. Wick- low, while 3,000 peo­ple work at the Lim­er­ick plant.

The re­port claimed that the gov­ern­ment was al­ready aware of com­pany plans to pull out of Ire­land. ‘The re­port is just to­tal un­truth, a to­tal lie,’ said Min­is­ter O’Dea.
