Ireland has made sevenx successful applications to the EGF. Three of these applications were for workers made redundant in specifically named companies (i.e., Dell, Waterford Crystal, and SR Technics) and the subsequent three EGF applications covered almost 9,000 workers and apprentices made redundant in three sectors of the construction industry. These six EGF programmes are now closed.
On 29th February 2012 the Department of Education and Skills submitted an application seeking co-financing assistance from the EGF for redundant workers at the Talk Talk call centre facility in Waterford and at three ancillary companies. This application was accepted on the 25th October 2012. Information on this programme is available here.
