Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation (Deputy Richard Bruton): Information on Richard Bruton Zoom on Richard Bruton I am informed by IDA Ireland that details of grants approved and paid to individual companies is not made publicly available as disclosure of such information could compromise the Agency’s negotiating position with other investors. I can confirm, however, that grants paid by IDA Ireland to its client companies in County Tipperary in 2010 totalled €17,055,098.

IDA Ireland has also explained that grants paid in any particular year do not necessarily relate to projects approved in that year and that, cosequently, there is no corelation between grants paid and jobs created in any particular year.

The number of jobs created in County Tipperary during 2010 is outlined in the table:
