Word is from my friends in the industry that Google and LinkedIn are going even larger scale in Dublin. Google buying at least one more new or refurb block , LinkedIn leasing one. I said some days ago when the T was in California that he hadn't gone there for nothing. Several announcements followed including one I forecast re Facebook. Fascinating times we live in.

Yes and hardly any unemployed Irish will get these jobs I suspect if Googles building in Ringsend is anything to go by., I hope I am wrong. We need local recruitment requirements so that these investments benefit the local community and lift them out of poverty.

Any investments in Dublin will always benefit the local community, surely? Trickle-down effect and all that...

Trickle down is voodoo economics.

I suppose something has to be salvaged from the Apple/Athenry debacle.

DE can always apply. Anyone who spends as long on the net as he does is clearly a shoe-in!

You really thought it was serious.

That's where we are folk's Even a parody response which shows how misguided it is to just bow down to big business and give them anything they want gets taken as serious.

What did DE write that was problematic? Bar problematic for neo liberals.

High profile companies for sure but these are jobs for the smug geeks - we need more industry that employs hundreds at a time.

This move is only made for tax reasons and the economy doesn't benefit.

You'd fit right into Victorian England with the labels applied to demean the less fortunate in society who grow up in impoverished backgrounds. I suppose you don't think they should rise above their station?

US firms warn housing crisis could harm Ireland’s competitiveness
Call for 30,000 rental properties for multinational staff
https://www.irishtimes.com/news/politics/us-firms-warn-housing-crisis-could-harm-ireland-s-competitiveness-1.3279433

A representative body for US businesses, including some of the biggest employers in the country, has warned the housing crisis is so severe it could damage Ireland’s competitiveness.

A report for the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland said more than 30,000 new one- and two-bedroom rental properties will be needed in Dublin by 2022 to sustain new jobs in multinational companies and maintain growth in inward investment.
The report said 232,500 new housing units will be required nationally over the next five years, including 81,500 in the greater Dublin area. Of these, 82,500 will be required in the rental sector, including 32,500 in and around Dublin.

Demand for new dwellings is estimated to be “at least 40,000 and closer to 50,000 per year,” according to the report on the housing shortage and its impact on foreign direct investment (FDI).

You need a university degree for these kind of jobs which is increasingly unattainable for the working class especially considering costs of accomodation in Dublin.

I do agree but you need to be realistic. Would the unemployed in the local community have the tech or foreign language skills to avail of these new positions ? I am afraid that is doubtful or in modern Dublin they wouldn't be unemployed anyway. You must look at secondary positions. I know it sounds harsh but if someone from outside Ireland can meet the likes of Googles requirements and pay taxes and contribute to the nation then I am fine with that. Yesterday IBM announced 150 jobs for Mulhuddart. Most of the people you speak of are completely unqualified for these roles. Does that mean we don't want the investment? There are millions of Irish and Plastics overseas who can and do fill these jobs. And if there were not then Google et al would not be here.

Pity we cannot balance the growth but it's all being driven by what the companies want and if that helps a few citizens then that's positive too

Last time I looked, we were in the EU. That means any EU native can apply for a job here. The auld Freedom of Movement thang.
