Sherlock welcomes sale of Whitegate Oil Refinery

I would like to welcome today’s news that Irving Oil is set to buy Ireland’s only oil refinery at Whitegate in Cork Harbour.

I believe this is a positive development, and I hope that jobs in Whitegate can be preserved and that this announcement will prove to be a platform for further job creation.

I also believe that as well as a providing for security of energy supply, there must be a pro-active plan for sustainable energy production.

As local TD and as Labour Party Spokesperson on energy, I look forward to engaging with Irving and I hope that the Government too will engage with the company, on the security of energy supply in Ireland, into the future.
