Ah, glorious progressive modern Ireland in the Heart of Europe. I think we can all agree that this is a small price to pay for such a diverse nation, yearly inundated with 1000s of Taxi Drivers, dodgy phone kiosk operators and Drill Band members:

Figures released by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) show that the country’s unemployment rate, including those in receipt of Covid-19 payments, was 26.1% in May.

The CSO released two different unemployment figures for the month stating that the Covid-19 crisis has had a significant impact on the labour market throughout May.

These figures are pandemic related presumably and therefore not strictly correct.

A lot of people are presumably temporarily unemployed because of the pandemic.
With the extension, today of the PUP extended until April next yeat it has now become a long term problem.
