Clare’s Junior Jobs Minister says he’s encouraged to see the significant rise in the number of local jobs added to the economy by Local Enterprise Office-backed investments.

Figures unveiled at the Annual Local Enterprise Office and Local Authority Forum show that nationally, there have been 3,700 jobs created in the past 12 months by LEO-supported companies.

This is a 10 percent rise on the previous year and forms part of an overall 15,000 vacancies added to the jobs market since 2014 by the 31 Local Enterprise Offices around Ireland.


Fine Gael Minister of State Pat Breen says the positive national trend was echoed in this county.
