The government's announced its plan for Ireland 2040.

By then, there'll be over a million more people living here.

That means more schools, hospital beds, transport capacity and housing is needed.

Today, the government revealed how the €116 billion is going to be spent. 

Here are some of the main points:

 - 900 million for the new Limerick to Cork motorway.

- 2 billion for urban regeneration in cities like Limerick, which will see the Limerick 2030 plan being fully developed.

 - More investment for Shannon and Knock airports and a 2nd runway at Dublin Airport.

- 22 billion to tackle climate change.

- 25,000 new homes a year by 2020.
