Shannonside counties among least visited by the IDA

Counties in the Shannonside region received some of the fewest number of visits by the IDA in the first six months of 2017.

The figures, which were discussed in the Dáil last week, revealed that Longford received six visits, Leitrim had three and Roscommon had only 2 visits from the IDA.

Figures for the third quarter of 2017 are expected to be released in the coming few days.


Sean Mahon, president of the Roscommon Chamber of Commerce, says the IDA doesn’t focus on rural counties enough.
