The Department of Creative Arts, Media and Music Visiting Guest Series continues on Thursday 1 February 2018 at 2pm in P1080, Carroll Building, where we welcome Michael McMahon, senior at Deloitte. He will be giving a talk titled ‘The Economic and Social Impact of Music in Ireland’.
The talk will discuss the work Deloitte has done with IMRO to look at the economic and social impact of music in Ireland. The Socio-Economic Contribution of Music to the Irish Economy, commissioned by the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) and produced by Deloitte, sets out a number of recommendations to maximise the contribution of music in Ireland, including the development of a National Music Strategy.
The report – an update on a Deloitte/IMRO 2015 analysis of the annual contribution made by the music industry to Ireland’s economy – indicates a strong and growing music industry which is contributing significantly to the economy and supporting more than 13,130 jobs and contributing more than €700 million to the Irish economy.
