Technology firms to create 100 new Irish jobs

Over 100 jobs are to come on stream at six companies across four counties, it was announced this morning.

Enterprise Minister Richard Bruton and the junior minister in his department Sean Sherlock announced the news in two separate investments.

The bulk of the new positions - 77 - are being created by five 'European high-growth companies', which have announced plans to establish Irish operations.

Around 40 will be created at CultureTranslate and Nimble Apps which are preparing to establish operations in Dublin.

The others are divided across Dublin, Dundalk in Co Louth, and Limerick, with positions being provided by Unique Digital, Diaceutics and iMosphere.

The news has been announced as part of an IDA event in Berlin this week which is showcasing Ireland as a location of choice for high growth companies.

“A key part of the Government’s plan for jobs and growth is ensuring that we deepen and develop the impact of multinational investment here," Minister Bruton said.

"We have a base of multinational companies here that is the envy of the world, but if we are to create the numbers of jobs we need we must build on this and attract a new cohort of companies which we haven’t reached before.

"These are companies that might be relatively small now, but have the potential to grow exponentially and create large numbers of jobs here."

Meanwhile, 30 new jobs have been announced at a company in Cork.

M/A - COM Technology Solutions is expanding its operation which already employs 68 people.
