Latest Clare Live Register Figures Revealed

An additional 110 people signed on Clare's live register last month.

However, the unemployment indicator still shows a significant drop when compared with the same point last year, 


Coming at the end of the academic year, June traditionally shows a rise in the live register, so the extra 110 people signing on last month doesn't come as a surprise.

Most of the increase came in Ennis and in East Clare, while there was a small fall in West Clare and a drop of 37 in the North of the county.

The total number of people signing on is now 6,950, a figure which is over 1,000 less than at the end of June 2015.

The fall represents a year-on-year drop of 12.8%, while in percentage terms the biggest percentage fall has been recorded in and around the county town.
