My last post dovetailed nicely with the launch of the national insulation programme (under the guise of the SEI's The Home Energy Saving Scheme), the governments stimulus for the ailing construction sector, along with the answer to reducing homeowners energy bills. For many it is seen as the answer for tradesmen and builders in sector - with the SEI estimating that it will influence an additional €500m in spending by property owners every year. It is certainly well founded, but is it enough ?

Today I found a positive story in the Sunday papers relating to the construction sector. Yippee! Maybe I should frame it. The announcement that minister Eamon Ryan is launching the national insulation programme to boost jobs in the construction sector. Great stuff, Minister!

More on this again, although I wanted to start with some good news before I commented on the latest CSO statistics. Reporting on the the relative health of the sector for tradesmen and builders, its bad news for some but there is something we can do about it..
