Varadkar welcomes €115,000 to support Fingal Local Enterprise Office & create local jobs


Dublin West TD and Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar has welcomed €115,000 in extra funding to support Fingal’s Local Enterprise Offices and help to create local jobs.

“The Government is allocating €115,000 in extra funding to Fingal Local Enterprise Office to help it to create more local jobs. Fingal LEO has identified a pipeline of projects which can start this year and would benefit from financial support.

“The funding will provide direct capital grant assistance to micro-enterprises in Fingal, so they can start or expand their business.

“I want to encourage all micro and small business owners in Dublin West and Fingal to engage with their local LEO, even if they don’t currently need financial support, as there are a huge number of other supports available to them.

“Local Enterprise Offices are key to supporting local businesses and provide an excellent first-stop-shop service for micro and small businesses here in Fingal.

“Fine Gael in Government continues to prioritise job-creation because we believe that only a strong economy, supporting people at work, can create a fair society.”
