“Yes, the economy is improving, and yes this government has created 70,000 jobs, but there is a generation out there looking for its first job,” councillor Binchy reminded the Ard Fheis as he proposed his motion urging the government to act. “When the members of that generation have a reasonable prospect of employment in their own country and their own community, then and only then will we be able to say that this recession has been tackled.

“The indigenous businesses they will work in, the businesses they will start and lead, must be nurtured and encouraged. We have to foster entrepreneurship. The government must get the tax conditions right to give these companies the room to breathe and grow. When this is done, this country and every community in it, will reap the rewards
