Request for Recommendations for Government

Request for Recommendations 


As you face into a further 2 weeks of the extra Covid-19 restrictions, we are aware of the acute pressure you and your business are under and we are anxious to assist you in any way we can.

You may already be aware of the Covid Business Supports that are currently available to all businesses in the country - those are detailed here.  And there is additional detail on our own LEO's site here.

As an outcome of Friday’s announcement by government that Kildare must continue to function with local restrictions, additional supports have been made available to Kildare businesses.  Those are detailed here in a press release dated August 21st.

You'll see in the press release that the Tánaiste has requested that the Kildare Local Enterprise Office make a list of recommendations for further measures that government can take to help you through the next two weeks and beyond.

While we cannot guarantee that all suggestions will be delivered upon, we feel it is really important that you the business owner are given a voice and assisted in every way possible.

Before we make any recommendations to the Tánaiste, Minister for Enterprise Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar, TD, on your behalf, we really want to capture your own thoughts on actions and measures that could be taken that would facilitate sectors to continue trading in the County under current restrictions while still adhering to Covid safety guidelines.

There are just 3 questions – you can answer them by clicking here

Please complete by 5pm on Tuesday 25th August.
