Taoiseach Enda Kenny is met by more than 200 protesters in Blackpool, Cork this morning where he announced 120 new jobs at Xanadu.

And they thought it was all over.

Inside the Xanadu office, Gavin O’Reilly, of Today FM, reports Mr Kenny saying:

“We’re very happy that Ireland will measure up here because the scheme is being designed specifically for this purpose. And, as I say, Europe’s only involvement now is purely for statistical reasons… Government did listen, after Government admitted that it certainly didn’t get everything right here. And it’s dealt with the question of the PPS, and it’s dealt with the question of the bonus regimes, and it’s dealt with the question of what happens after 2019.”
