I propose to take Questions Nos. 149 to 151, inclusive, together.

IDA Ireland's performance in 2018 resulted in the sixth consecutive year of strong growth under the Agency's current strategy. By the end of last year, total employment in the Agency's client companies stood at 229,057. Every region in Ireland has seen foreign direct investment-driven employment gains and there are now over 132,000 people employed across 681 firms in IDA client companies located outside of Dublin. 58% of all IDA client-supported jobs, in fact, are now located outside the capital. I am determined, together with the IDA, to see this trend continue and we will be doing everything possible in 2019 to encourage more firms to invest further in the regions.

The following tables provide a breakdown of jobs created by IDA supported companies in each county for 2018 and 2017 and the number of IDA jobs by county and region from 2011 to 2018.
