Highest number of people in employment ever in Ireland
It is some feat alright and to think there is capacity for a lot more jobs to be added when we are only going to build 20k residential units this year but there is a requirement for 30k

Unemployment rate falls below 5% for first time since crash
Ongoing strength of labour market reflected in latest jobless numbers
13 minutes ago Updated: 12 minutes ago

The State’s unemployment rate has fallen below 5 per cent for first time since the crash reflecting the ongoing strength of the labour market.

The Central Statistics Office (CSO) said the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for October was 4.8 per cent, down from 5.7 per cent a year ago.

The last time the jobless rate was below 5 per cent was in July 2007. The current rate is also 11 percentage points lower than the 16 per cent rate recorded at the peak of the financial crisis in 2012.

The seasonally adjusted number of persons unemployed was 117,300 in October 2019, representing annual decrease of 19,400, the CSO said.

Employment passes 2.3 million for first time
Numbers grow by 2.4% in third quarter

Employment in the Irish economy has surpassed 2.3 million for the first time.

According to the Central Statistics Office (CSO), the number of people employed here grew by 53,700 (2.4 per cent) to 2.32 million in the third quarter of 2019.

This is around 80,000 higher than the boom time high of 2.23 million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2007 and reflects the current strength of the economy.

However, the CSO cautioned that the State has a bigger population now and a larger workforce than in 2007 and that the employment rate – the proportion of adults with jobs – is still below the pre-crash level.

Nonetheless the figures, contained in the CSO’s latest Labour Force Survey, show that employment in the economy has risen for 29 consecutive quarters since 2013, the official low point of the crash.

The survey showed employment increased in nine of the 14 economic sectors over the year with largest increase (+12.9 per cent +13,000) recorded in the financial, insurance and real estate sector.

The largest decrease was in agriculture, forestry and fishing, which fell by 5.2 per cent or 5,500.

The headline rate of unemployment for the third quarter was put at 4.9 per cent, equating to 128,000 people.
