Only two IDA site visits to local region so far this year

So far this year there have only been two IDA site visits across Cavan and Monaghan.

Information released by the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation shows that as of the second quarter of 2018, Cavan and Monaghan had received one visit each.

Last year there were three local IDA visits which was criticises for not being substantial enough. In the reply to a written question by local Fianna Fail TD Niamh Smyth, the Department adds that site visit activity does not necessarily reflect investment potential.
