If Paddy Reilly came back to Ballyjamesduff he would probably work in manufacturing. Just over 37% of the workforce are employed in manufacturing in the Cavan town – compared to Irish average of just 11.6%. Cavan Crystal and Liffey Meats probably account for many of these jobs.
Ballyhaunis in Mayo is second – with 31.8% working in manufacturing – the Dawn Meats plant probably the main reason for that.
The national average is 11.62% .
Malahide has the lowest proportion of people employed in manufacturing (they are all too busy selling)
