Are the Local Enterprise Offices different to the County and City Enterprise Boards?

In April 2014 the existing 35 County Enterprise Boards were dissolved under primary legislation and the functions, assets and liabilities were transferred to Enterprise Ireland with the Local Authority structure agreeing to carry out these functions on EI’s behalf in Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs).

With 31 dedicated teams set up as offices of within each Local Authority in Ireland, LEOs offer a wide range of experience, skills and services.  LEOs also promote enterprise and entrepreneurship and foster a culture of enterprise.
