I propose to take Questions Nos. 1418 and 1421 together.

In the first quarter of 2017, there was one IDA Ireland-sponsored site visit to Co. Roscommon. In 2016, there was one site visit only.  While this is disappointing, it must be borne in mind that site visits are not the only indication of foreign direct investment (FDI) activity in a county. The majority of new FDI comes from existing IDA Ireland client companies. The table below details the investments announced for Galway and Roscommon from 2014-2016, however, it should be noted that not all investments are publicly announced.
