“Today’s announcement that LogMeIn, a leading company in this sector, is locating an important facility in Dublin with the planned creation of 50 jobs is a further indication of the strong growth of this sector in Ireland,” he said.

Michael Simon, chief executive of LogMeIn, said the Dublin office was key to the company’s continued European expansion.

“We see this new office becoming an increasingly important international hub for attracting and supporting our rapidly expanding user and customer base,” he added.

“It’s great to be in Ireland, and we look forward to welcoming lots of energetic, smart, technology savvy and driven employees from Dublin to the LogMeIn family.”
