County Kildare Chamber welcomed the latest drop in unemployment figures today ( Tuesday 4th July) . 

Allan Shine, CEO of the Chamber said this afternoon, “Unemployment has consistently fallen since hitting a peak of 15.1% in 2012 when the country was in the middle of a three-year international bailout and jobs growth has accelerated further in recent months. Ireland remains on a clear trajectory for unemployment to fall below 6% in the coming months. In the upcoming budget, the Chamber is calling for increased levels of investment to ensure that Kildare can meet both the needs of a growing economy and population, as well as the challenges emerging from Brexit.
