Scheopp workers reunited
FORMER employees from the Scheopp Velours factory held a reunion in the Gaelic Bar in Bishopwater
Scheopp Velours was a textile factory that ran from the early to mid-80s until its closure in 2001 and was based in Drinagh, where Celtic Linen is now based.
At its peak it employed around 350.
By word of mouth, more than 50 former employees attended the reunion and a bigger event is now being planned for next year.
