Limerick Economic Monitor May 2021

COVID-19 has caused unprecedented disruption but the prospect of the re-opening of the economy this summer, as well as building back better and more sustainably, provides some cause for optimism, the latest EY Economic Monitor for Limerick has revealed.

The biannual report, which is prepared by EY for Limerick City and County Council, reveals that despite the unprecedented challenges of the past year, Limerick has shown resilience during Covid-19, with a key indicator being the creation of 860 new jobs and 194 start-ups to end of Q1 2021. Another positive was that residential investment from August to end of February was €250m.
