I propose to take Questions Nos. 461 and 462 together.
2019 was another very strong year for job creation among Enterprise Ireland clients with almost 17,000 new jobs created. Almost 222,000 people are now employed by these State-supported companies, the highest in the lifetime of the agency. Crucially, two-thirds of the new jobs are outside Dublin, and 65% of total employment is now in the regions.
A county breakdown of employment in Enterprise Ireland supported companies and the number of client companies supported in 2018 and 2019 is presented in Table 1. A breakdown by Dublin County Borough is presented in Table 2.
