Good news for communities who depend on their local CE workers.

More than 230 additional places on Community Employment and Tús schemes have been announced across the Shannonside Northern Sound region.

It's part of the government's plan to tackle unemployment and will see every county nationwide benefit from additional Community Employment places.

Community Employment and Tús schemes are employment support measures for long-term unemployed people and those in receipt of long-term payments.
