Fianna Fáil Deputy Leader and TD for Mayo Dara Calleary has accused the government of having no ambition for indigenous enterprise in County Mayo. 

The Ballina TD’s comments comes on foot of two recent government announcements – one for regional enterprise development funds totalling €29 million and another for the Government Disruptive Technology Fund totalling €75 million – in which Mayo applicants were overlooked.

Deputy Calleary say that despite being home to many excellent local and multinational companies, we are falling way behind in terms of investment. 

 He says only 23 out of a total of 3,289 IDA Ireland client visits undertaken between 2011 and 2017 were to Co. Mayo and we have not attracted a new IDA Ireland supported company in a number of years.
