SIPTU members employed at the Nuremore Hotel and Country Club in Carrickmacross, county Monaghan, have formally applied to appoint a liquidator to the company, the application is listed to be heard in the High Court on Monday, 27th March. SIPTU Sector Organiser, John Regan, said: “Our members have now suffered more than 70 days of a sham lay off situation during which it has become abundantly clear that their place of work will not be opening again under its current management.  “The liquidator will be able to arrange for monies owed to our members to be paid and hopefully facilitate the hotel reopening under a new owner.” Regan added: “It has also come to our attention that a sale by the local Revenue Sheriff of some of the facility’s moveable assets, associated with its golf course and leisure centre, is also scheduled to commence. This situation necessitates a speedy resolution to the wider issues related to this company. “Our members hope that this process will be the beginning of the end of the nightmare for them and their families, as well as the wider community, which has surrounded the slow decline of this hotel over the last few months.  “It is hoped that the workers will soon have a financial resolution to the issues of non-payment of wages and other entitlements which began last year. It may also be hoped that the hotel, leisure centre and golf course can shortly once again become a provider of quality jobs and a valuable tourism resource for the local community.”
