    Suppose they had not attracted any new jobs and we got to keep the €360 odd million would you be happy?

    OK - what would the job losses have been in the EI-supported companies were it not for EI support? Absent that statistic, the "6 net jobs" statistic is extremely misleading.

    It's a bit like complaining that Garda spending is a complete waste because there's still crime. I mean, when did the Gardai ever achieve negative crime figures, dammit?
    Never let the best be the enemy of the good.

    They created over 9,000 jobs in a very bad year.

    Between themselves and the IDA they do a fantastic job for the country and over the last few years, in business speak, we'd be hanging by our bolloxs without them.

    Mr Ryan said he was elated because the collapse in the construction sector had devastated firms and accounted for more than half the job losses in Enterprise Ireland-supported firms between 2008 and 2010.
    I thought EI were only concerned with Irish business in the export market? How would they be affected by the construction collpase? Am I missing something?

    I presume companies like CRH and Kingspan are affected by the European slow down of construction. I don't know if they get EI support.

    How much are the big knobs at EI earning? It seems even worse than the county enterprise boards where almost all the money given to them was paid in salaries, bonuses and expenses!
    If you started a business with 6 employees, you would be crucified by red tape, rent, rates etc, in particular if you were an Irish person! Oh and no SW rights if your business goes belly up and in many respects the environment would be made to virtually guarantee your failure! You couldn't make it up!

    Get off your high horse. Euro 336,000,000 for the supposed 9,000 jobs is Euro 37,333 per job. That, along with our ultra low corporate tax rate, makes me wonder exactly how hard their jobs are (and how they got them).
