Employment up by 21% in the last 6 years

I see from the Central Statics Office website that employment in Ireland has risen by almost 410,000 in the last six years. More and more of them are employed on a full-time basis rather than part-time because they couldn’t get a full-time position (i.e. because they want to be).

This 21% rise in employment is good news for Ireland and both the CSO commentary and a story in today’s Irish Times story are worth looking at further.
