“Ireland remains one of the most exciting places in the world for new digital enterprises,” Kenny said today.

“I’m delighted to welcome 335 new jobs in nine companies in the rapidly growing digital sector. As a Government, we are determined to keep building on the 3,000 jobs being created in the private sector each month in order to get people back to work.  

“Through the Action Plan for Jobs, we will continue to provide strong, co-ordinated policy support for measures which attract investment and jobs, as well as support for the work of the IDA in targeting high-potential businesses which can be future success stories from an Irish base,” Kenny said.
