Mr. Fahey Mr. Fahey
Mr. Fahey:Following the closure of Clare LES, FÁS, at my request, commenced a comprehensive review of the labour market needs of the Clare region in the context of the closure. The review is now complete and a report has been prepared and circulated.
The report recommends the establishment of a new service. In light of this recommendation, a meeting has taken place between FÁS regional management in the mid-west and Eirí Corca Baiscinn, an ADM funded group in County Clare, to discuss the proposed service. The board of management of Eirí Corca Baiscinn is currently preparing a submission on the service for discussion with FÁS, following which a decision will be made on the future operation of the service.
