The IDA have today released figures which show that more than one-in-five private sector jobs in the economy (direct and indirect employment), are as a result of IDA-supported Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).

Almost 19,000 jobs were created last year by IDA client companies in regions all over Ireland, with over 9,000 jobs created outside Dublin.

Those counties that experienced the highest growth in 2015 included: Waterford, Limerick, Westmeath, Donegal, Louth and Galway.

Those counties that did not grow in 2015 were Wicklow, Monaghan, Sligo, Kilkenny, Tipperary and Wexford.
