EGF Programmes in Ireland

To date Ireland has made 10 successful applications to the EGF.

7 of these applications were submitted on foot of redundancy situations arising from the closure of facilities at Dell, Waterford Crystal, SR Technics (all in 2009), Talk Talk (2011), Andersen Ireland, Lufthansa Technik Airmotive Ireland (both 2014) and PWA International (2015)

Information on all of these programmes is available at the following links:

The other 3 applications were sectoral and provided supports for construction workers and apprentices who were made redundant between July 2009 and March 2010 in the following NACE sectors –

  • NACE 41 – workers and apprentices previously employed by companies involved in the construction of residential and non-residential buildings;
  • NACE 43 – workers and apprentices previously employed in companies providing a range of trades allied to construction (e.g., plastering, carpentry, painting, roofing etc); and.
  • NACE 71 – workers previously employed in companies providing architectural and engineering services.
