William Hill to close 14 betting shops in Ireland

9 Feb 2009

IRELAND -- As reported by The Irish Times: "Bookmaker William Hill plans to close 14 shops in the Republic next month with the loss of 53 jobs. It confirmed yesterday that it was closing 14 outlets in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Clare, Wexford and Waterford.

"Its statement said this would put a number of jobs at risk of redundancy.

"It is understood that up to 53 staff will be laid off as a result.

"The British-based bookmaker blamed the economic downturn and the proposal to double betting turnover tax to 2 per cent from next May.

"It also attributed the decision to the "restriction on introducing innovative and profitable products into Irish shops"..."
