Jobless get free course

THE Minister for State for Small Business, John Perry (right), has welcomed the world's largest professional body for bookkeepers, ICB Global, as it marked the opening of its regional office in Ireland.

To mark the occasion, a free training course in bookkeeping is being provided to 100 long-term unemployed people. The event was sponsored by Ireland's leading online accounting software company, Big Red Cloud, which is matching ICB's pledge by providing free online accounting software.
