Quite a few jobs back when Homestore opened a few weeks back there. Recovering the jobs lost when Homebase closed - due to the Fianna-Fail led economic crash, if you want to bring politics into it.
The current government have reduced unemployment by creating the right conditions - to encourage inward investment and local business owners to go out and expand.
Okay, for sure they could pull a Charlie McCreevy type stunt on it by unilaterally moving civil servants anywhere and everywhere across the country as if they were pawns in a chess game or more likely a game of draughts or chequers. But that particular decision was a typical FF approach to running the country and a disaster that essentially maimed a lot of the effecitve governance of the country by causing excellent experienced people, expert in their area, refusing to move with their job - because they had children in schools or elderly parents that needed looking after - that were not in Schull or Leenane - mundane stuff like that.
And they ran thousands of nurses and doctors out of the health service - that's FF for ya! to paraphrase one of our former great leaders AR.
