Written answers (Question to Arts)

I have been informed by Údarás na Gaeltachta that the grant cost per job for 2012 was €8,091 and that the average cost per job over the past five years, which reflects the cost per job sustained, was €10,230.

The figures provided reflect grant expenditure on capital, employment, research and development and training paid by Údarás na Gaeltachta to its client companies but excludes FIFG (Financial Instrument for Fisheries Guidance) and Research, Development and Innovation (R&D&I) funding and certain other expenditure on training and education.
