Last year, Údarás na Gaeltachta approved projects which are expected to create a further 560 new jobs and lead to an overall projected investment of €44 million in Gaeltacht companies. Over half of these jobs will be created in new start-up enterprises, with the remainder generated by existing client-companies as they further expand their businesses. These jobs are expected to come on stream throughout 2014 and in subsequent years.
