Revealed: The true extent of Kerry’s huge jobs crisis

By: Mary Murphy

STARTLING
figures which reveal an additional 400 people are signing on the live unemployment register in Kerry have been released by Fine Gael TDJimmy Deenihan.
He has highlighted job losses in the county and called on the Minister for Enterprise to arrange an urgent visit with a view to addressing the industrial crisis.
Apart from the loss of a total of 97 jobs in Glen Dimplex, Tralee and the cutting off of 25 per cent of the workforce of Fleet Street Travel, there has been a litany of high profile companies that have either closed down operations or shed jobs in Kerry in recent years,” he said.
“Employment opportunities in the county are extremely poor at present and there is a major lack of foreign direct investment in Kerry and job creation seems almost non existent,” he stated,

What if jobs are slowly, almost imperceptibly, leaving Ireland due to high overheads such as housing?

There's a definite trend towards loss of manufacturing jobs (NEC for instance, and others every week).

However the enormous construction sector and service areas seem to be balancing out. Remember, the construction sector has grown to an enormous proportion of the workforce.

Kerry, however, has never been a hotbed of economic activity. I know a family from there with 6 grown up kids, every single one either in Dublin or Boston now. The rule pretty much is if you want a job and you don't want to work in the pub, show Fungy (RIP) to the tourists, or be a farmer, you leave.

The high prices will probably be largely holiday home buyers. It's not BTL anyway as it's possible to rent a house for (what seems) practically nothing :)

There's also an element about of the phenomenon seen in England with London - prices high in the capital first then getting silly everywhere else as people get used to the idea or whatever. There just isn't much scope to go higher either in Dublin or the surrounding dormitory counties so HPI moves on...

Haha, never, the only upsides of Leitrim are that 1) you can drive across it in 5 mins and 2) the driving test waiting time is probably very short, assuming they have a test centre there :)

There isn't a decent size town in the entire county.

House price boom in luverly Leitrim? The very idea makes me :lol::lol::lol:

Just been listening to a great Christy Moore song about Leitrim - taking the p out of RTE

See yous later - I need a drink - just spent the day at an event with 3 politicians at each others throats at one point shouting b****** and f*** o** at each other and a malicious gaggle of reporters who will probably now proceed to mis-quote them and s*** on me. Jasus!
