ABOUT 37,000 fewer people signed on the dole in September than the same month last year, according to the latest Live Register figures.
The Central Statistics Office (CSO) said this morning that the number on the Live Register in September was down 10.1pc on September 2014.
On a monthly basis, the number also continued to fall, with 3,700 fewer signing on than August, bringing the seasonally adjusted figure to 337,300.
It comes just days after a separate release showed that the unemployment rate slipped fractionally last month to 9.4pc. This compares to 10.9pc in September of last year.
