Companies supported by payments from Enterprise Ireland  employ 201,000 people. Jobs minister Frances Fitzgerald told the Dáil that  in 2016 EI-supported firms had created over 19,000 jobs, with a net increase of 9,117 when job losses are factored in.

“Enterprise Ireland client companies are a critical source of existing employment and job creation in every county in Ireland and are spread across a wide range of sectors,” she said.  The minister provided detailed figures for permanent full-time jobs by county in EI-supported firms, including for each local authority in the Dublin region.

In the tables below, ‘Other jobs’ refers to employees who are part-time, temporary, short-term contract and agency workers employed on a part-time or short-term basis or employed on contracts of less than nine months and exclude those based permanently in overseas offices.
