[RTE] Diageo says it will make an announcement tomorrow on the future of its brewing operations in Ireland including the historic Guinness brewery at St James's Gate.
It has been anticipated for some time that the company plans to consolidate its operations in Ireland into a new green-field site.
Diageo Chief Executive Paul Walsh is to fly to Dublin for a news conference at St James's Gate tomorrow morning.
We've been warning about Diageo's ownership of Guinness for years.
UPDATE: Diageo was too aware of the PR disaster of closing St James's Gate. But it will be a much reduced operation.
