Irish unemployment falls to 7.3 pct in November

DUBLIN, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Ireland’s unemployment rate fell to 7.3 percent in November from 7.5 percent the previous month, the state statistics service said on Tuesday.

Employment has increased strongly amid a broadening economic recovery since the jobless rate hit a high of 15.1 percent in early 2012.

The total number of people unemployed fell to 160,700 in November from 164,100 the previous month, the data showed. (Reporting by Conor Humphries; Editing by Louise Ireland)
