Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce says local economy looking up

Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce says the local economy is looking up.

However, Chamber CEO John Hurley is now looking for the candidates in next Friday’s by-election to commit to keeping it that way.

There’s less than a week to go until polling day to fill the Carlow/Kilkenny Dáil seat and Kilkenny Chamber has come up with its own election manifesto.

The group which represents businesses in the city and county is looking for commitment on a number of issues including reduced USC rates, supporting entrepreneurs and increasing capital investment.

Speaking to KCLR, John Hurley says we are starting to feel the recovery locally.
