Sinn Féin accuses government of ‘feigning surprise’ over Tara Mine closure

Up to 650 jobs have been cut following the closure of the Co Meath site, which Taoiseach Leo Varadkar says could be used to host a ‘bespoke energy scheme’

Mary Lou McDonald: Speaking in the Dáil, the Sinn Féin leader said the closure of the mine was a “body blow” that had left workers, families and communities “reeling”.
