Welcoming plans for Enterprise Month 2019, the Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr Norma Foley stated: ‘Creating more enterprise and jobs in regional and rural Ireland is a priority for the government. Kerry needs these supports to develop indigenous business and to attract Foreign Direct Investment.

Chief Executive of Kerry County Council, Moira Murrell said: ‘The new start-ups of today are the employers of the future, and we need to ensure as many as possible succeed. That is why Kerry County Council is on hand to support people embarking on their business journey through its Economic Development Unit and Local Enterprise Office. Supports are not just directed towards start-ups but our office is keen to engage with growing businesses capable of generating more employment.’

Head of the Local Enterprise Office in Kerry, Tomás Hayes, highlighted all the other supports that are on offer to new-start-ups in 2019, such as grants, microfinance loans, one-to-one mentoring and business advice clinics. ‘We need ongoing growth in our county. There are some very exciting developments in enterprise development such as the coastal innovation hubs, and the development of the sci-tech and agri-tech sectors, and we need to look to the future regarding new trends and technology advances. There is a wide selection of events on the programme for the coming month and I hope everyone will engage with them and learn more about what is on offer to enterprises in the county,’ he said.
