Mc Conalogue says IDA must reverse Dublin bias

Charlie McConalogue

New figures released to Fianna Fáil reveal that there have only been 11 IDA site visits to Donegal in 2015 and 2016. In contrast, there were 446 visits in Co. Dublin over the same period.

Deputy Charlie McConalogue says there has been a complete vacuum of investment in the border counties over the past 5 years, and this pattern is continuing under the new Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor.

He claims it is blatantly obvious that the Government is solely focused on attracting investment to Dublin and the surrounding commuter counties, while allowing the regions to lag behind.
