An average of almost 71 companies were formed daily in February this year - which made it the second best February for company start-ups since the year 2000, when 2,229 were formed.

Professional services remains the most popular industry for Irish start-ups with almost one in five (395) operating in this sector - these companies would typically be associated with Accounting, Admin, Marketing, Engineering, HR, Investigation, Legal Services etc.

The finance and social & personal sectors were the second and third most popular industries for start-ups and accounted for 480 new companies between them. Construction and wholesale & retail round out the top 5 most popular industries with 195 and 174 start-ups respectively.

Approximately 46% of this January's start-ups are based in Dublin with just over another 9% based in Cork. Galway, Meath and Limerick are next on the list and account for 11.5% of new companies between them.

For the year to date 4,439 new companies have been set up in Ireland


Consultation on River Basin Management Plan for Ireland 2018-2021

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Mr. Simon Coveney, T.D., Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government on 28 February 2017, published the draft River Basin Management Plan for Ireland 2018-2021. The draft plan will be subject to six months public consultation as required by the Water Framework Directive.
This second cycle River Basin Management Plan takes a very different approach to river basin management planning to that adopted during the first cycle plans. There is now a single river basin district approach with a much improved evidence base to underpin decision making. Implementation structures have been strengthened to ensure more effective and coordinated delivery of measures, and our approach to public consultation and engagement has been improved.
