My Department has now transitioned its material to Gov.ie. Project Ireland 2040 information is available at gov.ie/2040. The specific link to the Investment Projects and Programmes Tracker is now

The Investment Projects and Programmes tracker is currently being revised and updated. This updated version will be published in autumn 2019.

Drawing on the material from the tracker, my Department has developed MyProjectIreland, a new citizen-focused interactive map developed in partnership with Ordnance Survey Ireland which allows the user to navigate projects around the country, finding out what is happening in their region. This further enhances public awareness and engagement. MyProjectIreland is available at

MyProjectIreland was launched alongside the first annual report for Project Ireland in May 2019.  The report provides a synopsis of the strong progress made so far as well a roadmap of what is still to come.
