IDA backed companies created just under 19,000 jobs last year in Ireland, according to end of year results released by the agency this morning. The number of net new jobs totalled 11,842. Job losses are at their lowest since 1997, the IDA said.
Some 52% of jobs were outside of Dublin, the IDA said.
The agency said there were net job gains in every region of the country.
Investments rose to 244 from 213. New name investments went to 99 from 94 in the previous year.
