As part of their “Joining the Dots” programme to encourage deeper economic ties between regions of Ireland and regions of the UK, the British Embassy in Ireland commissioned Professor Jonathan Levie and Dr Majella Giblin of the J.E. Cairnes School of Business & Economics at National University of Ireland Galway to conduct an analysis of sectoral strengths in Galway and Mayo and match these to city regions of the UK. This report identifies possible target regions in the UK with potential to deliver increased connections in research, business and economic development policy and practice.
