A new Regional Enterprise plan for the Mid West  covering Clare, Limerick and Tipperary is being  launched  today.

The Tánaiste Leo Varadkar and Ministers of State Damien English and Robert Troy made the announcement at the Civic offices in Nenagh.

Later today they  will visit CTL Ltd in Birdhill and Bulmers in Clonmel. 

8 other regional plans will be launched in the coming weeks.

The plans will be supported by a fund of 180 million euros and are designed to generate new projects which create new jobs and help companies to grow in the region over the next 2 years.

Each of the nine plans has been developed throughout 2021 by Regional Steering Committees with Professor Eamonn Murphy leading the Mid-West Steering Committee supported by Paraic Rattigan, Mid-West Programme Manager.

16 million euros was allocated to the Mid West region under the last Regional Enterprise Plan which provided funding for 8 regional projects including €500,000 for the Tipperary Innovation Engine which will deliver co-working spaces and supports for start-up enterprises at the Digital hub on Rosanna Road in Tipperary town.
