The Bible would be more believable had Hemingway written it.  He was a master at making fiction seem real.

"Coronavirus: Primark says no to £30m job retention bonus"

Very interesting news story, and quite a few of these big businesses have been behaving surprisingly well.

Lots of other very good and very readable news stories on the page on that link.

Technically you are right in that Primark has its head office in Dublin.
However it is a subsidiary of Associated British Foods, a British multi national company.

Dhaka garment factory collapseMain article: 2013 Dhaka garment factory collapse On 24 April 2013, the eight-story Rana Plaza commercial building collapsed in Savar, a sub-district near Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. At least 1,127 people died and over 2,438 were injured.[37] The factory housed a number of separate garment factories employing around 5,000 people, several shops, and a bank.[38] The day before the building collapsed, other businesses had closed but garment factory owners pressurized employees to report for work.[39] Clothing labels from Mango and Primark were found amongst the dead, [40].  Apparel for other brands were also manufactured at the site including the Benetton Group, Joe Fresh,[41] The Children's Place, Primark, Monsoon, and DressBarn[42][43]  Primark paid compensation and emergency aid to the victims of the collapse,[9] a move which was welcomed by Oxfam,[44] and committed to review the structural integrity of buildings making its clothes.[45]
Of the 29 brands identified as having sourced products from the Rana Plaza factories, only nine attended meetings held in November 2013 to agree a proposal on compensation to the victims. Several companies refused to sign, including Walmart, Carrefour, Mango, Auchan and Kik. The agreement was signed by Primark, Loblaw, Bonmarché and El Corte Inglés.[46][47]
