Finglas Forgotten in Government Action Plan for Jobs (Another Broken Promise):

The Fine Gael/Labour governments plan to have 100,000 more people in work by 2016 and 2 million people in work by 2020 looks set to be nothing more than a publicity stunt. While there has been a net increase in private sector employment of approximately 12,000 private sector jobs in the past year, the unemployment rate remains high at 14.6 per cent. Comparing live register figures from January 2011 (5994) and January 2013 (6374) there has been a net increase of 380 people singing on in the Finglas area.

Fianna Fail Local Area Rep David Costello said, “Labour and Fine Gael have never been able to deliver on Jobs for Finglas. Figures published by the CSO indicate that while unemployment is stable or reducing nationally the figures for Finglas are increasing.”

“I have met with Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Jobs, Dara Calleary, to discuss my concerns and the lack of tangible progress that has been made in the area of job creation for the Finglas area.” “These figures are unacceptable and highlight yet another broken promise by labour TD’s representing the people of Finglas. Labour TD’s have let the people of Finglas Down”.
