65 people are to lose their jobs at a Coca-Cola plant in  the north-east.

The company says the jobs at its Drogheda facility will go following a global review of it's integrated-services division.

However, as part of that review, it says 10 new roles will be created at the plant.

In a statement, a Coca-Cola spokesperson said it "will work to treat all employees fairly and compassionately throughout this process."

The company employs roughly 1,500 people in manufacturing, marketing, corporate affairs, R&D, financial and HR services across the island of Ireland, with around 200 of those employed at its Drogheda facility.

Local TD Fergus O'Dowd says the loss of 65 jobs is a major blow to the town:

"Coca-Cola has been a very good industry in Drogheda - they have been present for many years."

"The loss of these jobs is very regrettable indeed."

He added, "I am aware that they are meeting - and have met some months ago - the employees who might have been concerned in this decision.

"They are making every effort to find them alternative roles that would satisfy them."
