Eight expanding US and European businesses backed by IDA Ireland have given Ireland a vote of confidence for their future.

Eight high growth client firms of IDA Ireland have confirmed 185 jobs in Shannon, Galway, Dundalk, Cork and Dublin.

The investments by the high-growth businesses from across Europe and the US are supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

“Our value proposition and our agile and adaptable business environment remains intact despite the unprecedented challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic”

The new jobs will be spread across the technology and business service sectors with a range of activities such as software development, business development, sales and marketing and tech support.

“The spread of these investments demonstrates IDA Ireland’s commitment to winning roles for regional locations and showcases the availability of talent and attractive work life balance in the regions which deeply resonates with overseas investors,” said IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan.

“Our value proposition and our agile and adaptable business environment remains intact despite the unprecedented challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic and IDA Ireland continues to compete strongly for every investment won for Ireland,” Shanahan said.

“These new jobs, which are in Shannon, Galway, Dundalk, Cork and Dublin, demonstrate the commitment of existing international partners to expand here, and also of our ability to attract new investment,” added An Tánaiste Leo Varadkar, TD. I wish the teams involved the very best of luck as they expand, or for those just setting up, as they establish themselves here. “
