They've fought long and hard for this.
A financial settlement for former Clerys workers has been announced, two years after they lost their jobs.
Some 460 staff, which included employees of Clerys as well as those employed by concession holders, were left without work after the landmark store closed its doors in 2015, It was bought out by Natrium, for €29 million.
