    Abstract

    This paper examines the resilience of Irish regions during the course of the current economic crisis, focussing specifically on employment in firms in receipt of assistance from the Irish enterprise development agencies. The paper proposes and employs a range of statistical indices, including the Ray-Srinath shift-share model, to identify the role of industrial structure, true regional factors and nationality mix, in regional employment performance. The analysis shows that nationality mix has an important impact on regional growth performance. This impact is, however, not clearcut. The foreign sector can have a positive as well as a negative effect on regional employment.
