40% of the workforce in six counties are claiming State income supports.

Kerry has the highest proportion of people reliant on the PUP, wage subsidy scheme or job seekers.

Kerry followed by Donegal, Dublin, Louth, Wexford and Carlow all have more than 40% of their labour force claiming state income supports.

Figures compiled by the Central Bank for the Irish Independent show that the effects of lockdowns are felt most severely in those counties where a large proportion of workers are employed in tourism and retail.

Roscommon, Laois, Meath, Kilkenny, Offaly and Cork had the lowest levels, with approximately 30% or less of their workforces reliant on the supports.
