5% increase in IDA Ireland border region jobs

IDA

A significant number of companies are considering relocating to Ireland, from Britain, after Brexit.

The IDA says its offices around the world are taking calls from firms looking for access to Europe when the UK leaves the EU.

The latest stats revealed today show that overseas businesses here now employ almost 200-thousand people.

Job losses within IDA client companies are also at their lowest level since 1997, but the trend isn't expected to continue.
