Written answers (Question to Business)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 710 and 711 together.

Regional development remains an absolute priority of mine. I am focused on supporting and sustaining existing regional employment while also working to create new economic opportunities and jobs in every county of Ireland. There are now over 230,000 people working in IDA client firms. Last year saw more IDA-supported jobs added in regional Ireland than at any time over the past 17 years, with 58% of total such employment now located outside of Dublin.  

With respect to grants, the IDA is authorised by my Department to provide a range of financial supports in the form of employment, capital, research and development, environmental and training grants. These grants are an important means of encouraging companies to invest in Ireland, particularly in regional locations. While IDA client companies in Meath received no employment grants in 2018, the Agency paid a total of €182,259 in training grants to two firms in the County.

Foreign direct investment (FDI) is growing in Louth and Meath. Both Counties, for example, experienced an increase of 4% in FDI-driven employment in 2018. While progress has been made in helping to generate new economic opportunities in Louth and Meath, the Government remains determined to achieve more. The IDA has a key role to play in this and the Agency is engaging with its clients, and with other enterprise agencies, to help create new jobs and source further investment.   

The following tables outline the number of IDA site visits to Counties Louth and Meath to date in 2019, the name and location and approximate employment ranges of each IDA client company and grants provided by the IDA in both counties in 2018.
