Staff at Irish branches of the Game retail chain are continuing their sit-in in pursuit of redundancy entitlements.

Game went into administration on Monday closed 277 stores in the UK and Ireland with immediate effect, resulting in 121 redundancies here.

In a statement, administrators PwC said that wages for the month of March would be paid this week.

However, staff have been told the company will not be paying redundancy and they will have to apply to the Government for statutory redundancy.


PwC says it is arranging a further meeting with representatives of the 121 employees in Ireland who are losing their jobs.

The administrator has previously stated that they were liaising with a number of parties who have expressed an interest in purchasing all or part of the business.

The administrators say the remaining 333 stores employing 2,814 people in Britain and Northern Ireland will stay open as normal while efforts to find a buyer continue.
