Foreign Direct Investment
The IDA’s performance for 2019 has shown that Ireland continued to perform very strongly in terms of attracting foreign direct investment (FDI). By the end of last year, total employment in the Agency's client companies stood at over 245,000. Every region in Ireland has seen FDI-driven employment gains and there are now over 138,000 people employed across 724 firms in IDA client companies located outside of Dublin. 57% of all IDA client-supported jobs, in fact, are now located outside the capital.
The following table outlines the total number of jobs in IDA Ireland client companies by county for 2019.
|Tipperary North Riding||216|
|Tipperary South Riding||3,624|
