The Arcadia group fashion firm, owned by British mogul Philip Green, is proposing the closure of several Irish stores as part of a major restructuring effort.
The company - whose brands include Topshop and Dorothy Perkins - is set to shut 23 stores across the UK and Ireland as part of a series of company voluntary agreements (CVAs).
Those include stores in Dublin - branches of Topshop, Topman, Evans / Wallis and Miss Selfridge - as well as a Miss Selfridge store in Galway and a Dorothy Perkins / Evans outlet in Cork.
The retail group's proposals will also see rents cut at nearly 200 of their remaining outlets.
Explaining the plan, Arcadia chief executive Ian Grabiner said: "Against a backdrop of challenging retail headwinds, changing consumer habits and ever-increasing online competition, we have seriously considered all possible strategic options to return the group to a stable financial platform.
"Following constructive discussions with all key stakeholders, we believe that a CVA is a best course of action.
"This has been a tough but necessary decision for the business."
Arcadia has faced significant financial challenges in recent months, largely as a result of a massive mounting pensions debt.
Mr Green, meanwhile, is no longer a billionaire, after his fortune halved in a year according to a recent Sunday Times Rich List.
The compilers of the list valued the Arcadia Group as "worthless".
