An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has reportedly held meetings with managers at aluminum plant Aughinish in Askeaton.

According to a report in today’s Irish Examiner concerns are mounting over the plant and its 450 workers.

Russian-owned Aughinish is the largest alumina refinery in Europe – it’s thought US sanctions may have impacted its operator Rusal.
