A Kerry MEP says a proposed jobs programme will benefit every county in Ireland.

The European Parliament has approved a provisional deal for a multi-billion EU investment programme that promises a big boost in jobs and growth.

MEPs voted for the ‘Invest EU’ initiative, which is an EU programme which supports investment and access to finance from 2021 to 2027.

Fine Gael MEP Sean Kelly says a range of businesses in Ireland could benefit from the fund.
