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."
It is understood that redundancies will be rolled out between October and January and also that ten new roles will be introduced at the Southgate facility.
