Speaking to Newry Times, Murphy said, “Last month the DETI committee discussed a report on the benefits of the All-Ireland economy produced by the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Enterprise, Jobs and Innovation. “We then asked the department to produce a written consideration of the report but we were told the department has no plans to give it any detailed consideration. “This is hugely disappointing and is indicative of the silo mentality that exists within some departments when it comes to growing the all-Ireland economy,” Murphy said.
