Keogh's Crisps Ltd employed 45 at the end of last year and 35 at the end of 2017, reports the Irish Independent.
New accounts show that last year the company reported a loss of €3,429 which followed a profit of €34,231 in 2017.
According to the Irish Independent, Tom Keogh, managing director, Keoghs attributed the the loss 'to expansion costs at the company and the 40% increase in production costs as a result of the summer drought last year'.
He said there was a 60 a reduction in yield from the potato crop here last year and "this had a massive impact on our financial result".
