Funding for Fingal job creation

19/11/2012

“Additional funding for Fingal Enterprise Board will fund the creation of up to 20 jobs in Dublin Fingal” according  to Fine Gael TD for Dublin Fingal Alan Farrell.

 The Minister for Small Business, John Perry T.D. has announced the provision of an additional €200,000 for Fingal County Enterprise fund to directly fund job creation in Dublin Fingal to fund job creation projects in the remaining months of 2012.  

 

“This is part of an national €3.78million fund that has just been announced for County and City Enterprise Boards to support and encourage companies to start-up or expand their services and thereby create and sustain jobs around the country.”

 

“This announcement follows an exercise in which each CEB was asked to examine the funding it currently has available and to determine whether this was sufficient to cover the project proposals coming to them over the rest of the year. Arising from this exercise, 5 Boards concluded that their existing allocation of funds in 2012 was sufficient to meet their needs.

 

It is well established that a huge proportion of jobs in this country are held in small, local enterprises. These companies are the lifeblood that is playing a key role in helping to restore our local economy to a healthier footing.” ENDS
