The Chair of Ennis 2040 DAC says engagement with private companies about attracting investment to the county town will begin immediately.

5,000 new jobs are promised in Ennis by 2040, with the town’s population projected to grow by around 50 percent in that timeframe.

The strategy promises to strategically position the county town as an ideal location for both domestic and international investment, while making it Ireland’s ‘first climate adaptive town’.


Ennis 2040 company chair, Gerry Cahill, says attracting foreign direct investment here in conjunction with the IDA will be one of the aims.
